I had high hopes about this recipe, but it was very disappointing. I used regular paprika instead of Hungarian. It was fairly flavorless, and everyone added extra salt and pepper to their portions. The liquid at the bottom of the bowl tasted too spicy. When I added the cornstarch mixture to the crockpot, it didn't visibly thicken it at all. I added an extra tablespoon of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water, but there was little change. I won't be making it again.
