Due to running out of idea's for hot weather meals and the need for something other than salads, but not wanting to heat up the kitchen too much, lately I've been turning to my slow cooker. I made this version of beef goulash in my slow cooker recently and it was delicious so will be made again. I'm sending it to Sandra who hosts a wonderful weekly event called Slow Cooking Thursday. please check it out for lots of great slow cooker meals.
