I'm giving this 5 stars, because I grew up on this stuff, and even though it may not be authentic Hungarian, it IS just a name. It has to be called something. I would say it is probably an Americanized version of Hungarian Paprikas. But, that aside, it doesn't matter. If you are looking for the original Rival crockpot recipe for Hungarian Goulash, that a lot of us grew up eating(and smelling when we got home from school-YUM!) then this is it. Can't beat it for comfort food.

If I read this correctly, it states Hungarian Goulash, how did the word Polish get involved..??? I like the recipe, my family likes the recipe and my friends really like the mom was Hungarian, this brought many good memories from the kitchen table as I remember as a young child... shupau semper-fi

This is such a great recipe and wonderful dish to serve for your family -- or for company. I have almost the identical recipe posted (149743) and it has received very high ratings. The new review on your recipe caught my eye and I thought it was rather rude. I am not Hungarian -- so really can't say what and what not is used in their cooking. But I know the recipe I have is called Hungarian Goulash -- just as yours is and it has sour cream, tomatoes AND thyme in it. I think the one star rating is unfair -- especially if it is a result of someone rating the recipe based on its name and ingredients instead of the wonderful dish that it is. If I could I'd give it more stars!
