VERY good! I've been trying to find a good Hungarian Goulash that comes close to one of our favorite Czeck Restaruants. This is really really close.. I did put 2 tablespoons of Hungarian Paprika instead of 2tsps and I used beef broth instead of water. Next time I think I'll try it with pork. Thanks for posting!

I love this dish! (Why does it have so few reviews?) I make it with pork loin (Costco), in the crock pot on low for several hours. I leave out the sugar, because it was too sweet for me the first time I made it. I don't add the flour at the end because I like it soupy. I take the pork loin out at the end, chop it small on a cutting board, and then put it all back in. I cook barley separately and then I mix that in. And I add some more water, maybe another cup. I guess it sort of makes a Hungarian pork/barley soup. I hope I'm not changing it too much for an review. I really do love this dish and all the delicious full flavor is from this wonderful recipe. Thank you so much!
