Pork and Pumpkin Crockpot Goulash Recipe

The saltiness of pork contrasts well with the sweetness of pumpkin in this crockpot goulash recipe. Hokkaido pumpkin is the best kind to use because it holds its shape when cooked and it does not need to be peeled. If you cannot find it, you can use any other kind of pumpkin but the cooking time might be slightly less, so you might want to add the pumpkin two hours into the total cooking time to ensure it does not go soggy and lose its shape. It does not really matter if the pumpkin does lose its shape a bit; it will still taste the same.

If you have already made plenty of crockpot dessert recipes, crockpot appetizer recipes and crockpot soups, why not try something different like this crockpot goulash recipe? It is very nice with rice or mashed potatoes or liquid enough to serve in a bowl soup-style. As always, feel free to add other ingredients to the dish. Mushrooms would work in this or zucchini would be good too. Do not worry about not sticking to the authentic goulash recipe because this dish is very tasty whatever you choose to add to it.

This is a warming, comforting, and soothing crockpot recipe, which pork lovers will enjoy very much. The meat is really tender and pairs nicely with the vegetables. The thyme, paprika, and garlic add flavor to this tasty crockpot goulash recipe and the sour cream adds a nice creaminess. Cream is traditionally served with goulash because its cool creaminess contrasts so well with the goulash taste and consistency.
