Potatoes. I love to add potatoes to my goulash because they help thicken it up. If your goulash is too watery, you can then blend a couple of potatoes and have a thick creamy stew.
Draining. You will notice that in many of my slow cooker stews and casseroles that I recommend draining towards the end of cooking. This prevents your stew from being over fatty and then you can create a creamier stew. Such as when I make a slow cooker Lancashire hotpot.
