I had been searching for a good goulash recipe for quite some time, and finally made my own from bits of several others. No potatoes in this one (my crock-pot usually doesn't get them tender enough). It will need salt at the end or at the table - I cook with very little salt and add it at the end because many of my friends need low-sodium food. My SO has been telling people 'It was GOOD goulash' for days since I made it. Enjoy!
