Today is very cool with thunder showers…very strange weather for the end of May. So I thought it was the perfect time for another comfort food recipe. Here’s my version of Goulash Soup. It’s very hearty and almost like a stew (my favourite kind of soup). Be sure to be hungry…you’ll be lining up for seconds.
This Recipe feeds a lot of hungry people!
1 1/2 lbs. stew beef, cubed
3 T. butter
1 garlic clove, minced
2 large onions, chopped
1 T. paprika
1 t. vinegar
1/2 t. caraway seed
1/2 t. marjoram
Salt and pepper to taste
2 T. flour
6 c. beef broth or water
1 lb. potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
Wash beef and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into bite-size cubes.
Melt butter in Dutch oven. Saute garlic and onions. Fry until translucent and golden.
Stir in paprika and vinegar. Add meat, broth, spices and a couple of dollops of Ketchup to taste. Mix well.
Cover and cook gently 1 – 1/2 hours.
Dilute flour with a little gravy; stir into soup. In the meantime, prepare and add the vegetables. Cover with lid and let ingredients cook for about 1 hour, or until vegetables are done. If needed, add more broth or water to dilute liquid.
Serve with a salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!
