I’m always on the lookout for new uses for my crockpot – meals that are easy and tasty. And so I discovered a goulash recipe that I adjusted slightly for my crockpot. Goulash is a Hungarian dish, meat (usually pork, sometimes beef) cooked in a pepper sauce – capiscums, chillis, paprika, and roasted peppers – with carraway seeds which gives it the Hungarian flavour.
The first time I made it with a large piece of pork shoulder – it was really good but a bit fatty. So the second time I tried it with diced port shoulder – less fat but also less flavour, so I think I need to find a balance between the two.
We have a Hungarian lady at work, she was impressed I’d tried making goulash and she tasted it and said it tasted like her mum’s, so I was really pleased. She also suggested that I serve it with Risoni (pasta in rice shape) which was really good.
