Now the ale I used in this recipe, I think, makes a big difference in the overall flavors. Yes, you can substitute apple cider for the beer if you don’t do alcohol, but believe me, it’s worth letting this lager do its magic. While it’s a ‘seasonal’ variety, in the off season, I’m going to use a similar dark ale.

What I love about this Sam Adams ‘Old Fezziwig’ Ale. Well, besides the really cool name, there’s the flavor profile. But, before I tell you about that, the name? It comes from Charles Dickens classic story, ‘A Christmas Carol’. Old Fezziwig is a character in the novel. And, he is the antithesis of his apprentice, Scrooge! The next time you watch the movie, you’ll have a renewed appreciation for Old Fezziwig!
Old Fashioned Goulash Recipe
The description of this ale just makes me want to take a sip, and I’m not really a beer drink. Here’s how Sam Adams describes it: ‘Spicy & bold, this festive ale is bursting with the flavors of the season. With a full body and spice it’ll help those long winter nights pass more quickly.

The rich malt character creates notes of sweet toffee, caramel, & roasty chocolate while classic holiday spices like cinnamon, ginger and orange peel dance on the tongue bringing with them the celebratory spirit of the season.’

Just like Old Fezziwig in ‘A Christmas Carol’ who was a happy portly ol’ Welsh man, this ‘happy belly goulash’ will bring out your best and those traits of ‘kindness, generosity and affection’! If you can’t find the Sam Adams version, no problem, just find a dark rich ale that appeals to you.
And, while I did my goulash in the oven, you surely could do it in a slow cooker, multi-cooker or crock pot. Adjust your settings accordingly. For a slow cooker/crock pot, I’d go 4-6 hours on Low and 2-3 hours on High. The key to determining whether it needs more cook time is the tenderness. It should be fork tender. Multi-cookers (pressure) cook much faster. Follow the instructions with your particular multi-cooker (i.e., InstaPot or Cuckoo Multi-Cooker).
Noodles aren't the only thing you might want to serve this goulash on~try rice or another type pasta. Get creative and serve over a hot biscuit, maybe a dinner roll, a piece of grilled artisan bread. If you want to stay away from carbs, serve it over a pile of fresh arugula splashed with some olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper!
