Recipe

Full of warming flavors, this traditional soup makes a rich and satisfying meal.

Yield: 6–8 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 2 Hrs

Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 large onions, sliced
  • 1½ lb (680g) boneless beef chuck, cut into 1½ in (4cm) cubes
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 quart (1 liter) beef or chicken stock
  • Sour cream, to serve

Directions

1. Heat 3 tbsp of the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook about 12 minutes, or until tender and golden.

2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. In batches, add the beef and cook, turning occasionally, until browned. Transfer to a plate and season with salt.

3. Add the beef, paprika, caraway seeds, cayenne, and cloves to the onions, then stir in the tomato paste. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, until the mixture is very fragrant. Stir in the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

4. Simmer gently for 1½ hours, or until the meat is very tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve, topping each portion with a dollop of sour cream.

Variation

Goulash Dumplings

To make this traditional accompaniment, mix 2 cups flour, 4 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp salt and enough water to form a smooth, elastic dough. Divide into 12 portions and, with floured hands, roll into balls. Place the dumplings in the soup for the last 25–30 minutes of cooking.

    Made this this morning. Excellent flavor right now but I"m sure will be even better tomorrow. I cut back on the Cayenne and put about 1/8 t. Onions took a long time and although tender I think if I'd let them go longer to develop more color it would have given more flavor. Delicious.
