Crock Pot Beef Goulash

This was another awesome recipe that I put together one day and then didn’t cook it until three days later. It turned out really good and it was done in the crock  pot. EASY. I got this recipe from the Paleo Recipe Book and adapted it. This book contains great recipes!  Lots of them too.

I grew up on beef goulash and beef stroganoff (this one will be done next weekend). This recipe is paleo (which means UPDATED from my childhood). I loved the red pepper and onion combo with the paprika. Updated from my childhood and JUST as good.



  • cooking fat
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb stew beef (already cut into cubes from Costco, or cut your stew beef into cubes)
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in to strips
  • 4 tbsp of paprika ( I LOVE PAPRIKA)
  • 3 tsp of caraway seeds
  •  2 cans chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup of beef stock
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to

  1. Mix all spices together, rub all over the beef. Add salt and pepper too. Let this sit in a covered dish for at least an hour – if you can let it sit overnight, do it. SO GOOD.
  2. Heat up your cooking fat, brown the beef. Take out of pan with a slotted spoon, set aside.
  3. Grab crock pot – layer a few pepper strips and onion slices on bottom.
  4. Move beef to crock pot on top of the onion and peppers.
  5. Place more onions and peppers on top.
  6. Pour liquid over the goods.
  7. Place lid on and put in crock pot, or in fridge until you are ready for crock pot.
  8. Turn on medium to high (put on 8 hours for mine)
  9. It will be done when you are ready. SO GOOD. Enjoy!

Note the random cute pic of my dog Mia. She’s so sweet. Had to put her in there.
