Can I make American Goulash with tomato juice?

You can use tomato juice instead of the crushed or diced tomatoes but it will change the texture. It will be more like a soup instead of a stew.

We actually have tried it both ways. It just depends on what type of mood we are in.

If we want something lighter and more like soup, I will add the tomato juice. However, if we want a really hearty meal full of chunky tomatoes, I make it as the recipe calls for.

The diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes really are amazing and blend all day in the slow cooker perfectly with the ground beef, veggies and seasonings.

Tip for making Homestyle One Pot Goulash:

This recipe calls for diced onions and you will love this tip.  Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.

It is just so nice to turn to the freezer and get what you need for recipes like this. We also use them for omelettes and more.

This is one tip that saves our family a ton of time. Give it a try and you will see!

Make sure you have a good slow cooker to make this All Day Crock Pot Goulash Recipe.

One of my favorite slow cookers is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

If you are in the market for something new,  I also love my Ninja cooker.  We use this one frequently because you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.

American Goulash calls for the ground beef to be browned before putting in the slow cooker. If you have this Nina cooking system, you can brown the meat right in the same pan.

We love this option and it is so handy. I actually wish I had of bought one of these years ago because they are just so handy.

If you need a new slow cooker, I would definitely take a look at one of these first. They are awesome!

It cuts down on pans to clean and just makes thinks really simple. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great for lots of recipes.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

Trust me! Buy the crock pot liners if you don’t already have any because they will save you so much time.

I don’t like spending extra money on things but I have learned the hard way to just buy the crock pot liners. 🙂 It sure makes life easier and one less thing to scrub and clean on busy weeks.

Old Fashioned Goulash Recipe Crock Pot is an easy one pot meal!

Everything you need for a great dinner is in the slow cooker. One of my favorite things about this recipe is the easy clean up.

Crockpot Cheesy Goulash is budget friendly.

You can easily add and omit different things to suit what you have on hand. Try using ground turkey instead of ground beef.

You can use ground turkey or even shredded turkey from leftovers. Yum!

Another idea is to add more tomatoes or pasta to this recipe to stretch the meat. If you are on a tight budget and need to feed a crowd and make this meal go even further, this is a tasty way to do it.

No one will realize you added extra of these ingredients and I promise it will be just as amazing and delicious. We have even added a few extra handfuls of pasta at the last minute when extra guests surprised us at dinner time.

This is a great recipe to work in any budget and your family will gobble it up.

It is so easy to swap pasta. We typically use elbow macaroni but use what you have.

Once, I even mixed a few different types of pasta because I didn’t have a full box and only realized at the very last minute. We are all for simple around here and going with the flow.

No need to complicate dinner time and the day even more. Your family will love this home cooked meal.

Instead of Hamburger goulash with elbow macaroni, try other types of pasta.

I often use what is on sale that week at the grocery store or what I already have in my pantry. This might be elbow, penne or even bow tie pasta.

This recipe is delicious however you make it and so frugal and easy on your budget. If you have a big family like I do, meals like this really help to keep our grocery bill reasonable while feeding hungry teenagers.

Either way it always turns out perfectly and the family just loves it. Give this a try!

  1. You recipe calls for onion and garlic, but your instructions don’t mention what do to with those ingredients or when to add them in. Do I cook them with the beef? Or do I add them in the cooker like the rest of the ingredients??

  2. I cook the onions with the ground beef and stir the minced garlic into the crock pot with the remaining ingredients. I have updated the recipe. Sorry for the confusion.

  3. Yes, you can put the ground beef and onions in the crock pot raw and break it apart before the last hour of the cooking time. I would only do this with lean ground beef so you do not have to worry about excess grease in the crock pot.

    This was very easy to make and very tasty! I altered the recipe by adding 2 small cans of Hunts tomato Sauce and it added more flavor for my tastes! It made so much I portioned out into freezer bags and tucked into freezer! Deelish!!

  5. 5 stars
    I am cooking this immediately, it sounds so good! I have one question: are we adding the uncooked pasta before or after the main cook time? For example, I will slow cook for 6 hours, do I add the macaroni at 5:45 hours, or when it’s done on warm? Thanks.
