  • 2 lbs (about 900g) ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni or other pasta of your choice
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Brown the Ground Beef:
    • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain excess fat if necessary.
  2. Prepare the Crockpot:
    • Transfer the browned ground beef to the crockpot. Add diced onion, minced garlic, diced red bell pepper, and diced green bell pepper.
  3. Add the Sauce and Seasonings:
    • Pour in the diced tomatoes (with their juices) and tomato sauce. Stir in beef broth, paprika, dried oregano, dried basil, dried thyme, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine all ingredients.
  4. Cook Low and Slow:
    • Cover the crockpot and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours. This allows the flavors to meld together and the vegetables to soften.
  5. Cook the Pasta:
    • About 30 minutes before serving, cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the cooked pasta.
  6. Combine and Serve:
    • Stir the cooked pasta into the crockpot goulash mixture. Allow it to heat through for a few minutes.
    • Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
    • Serve the crockpot goulash hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.

Note: You can customize this recipe by adding other vegetables like carrots or mushrooms, or by using different types of pasta. Feel free to experiment with the seasonings to suit your taste preferences.

This Crockpot Goulash recipe is perfect for busy days when you want a hearty and flavorful meal waiting for you at home. Enjoy the rich flavors and comforting aroma of this classic dish!
