Hungarian Goulash Soup Recipe

Hungarian Goulash Soup Recipe

I taught with the Defense Department in Germany (and met my husband, an Air Force pilot, there). Goulash soup was one of the first foods I tried overseas...I pieced this recipe together once I got back home. I make it often—with two little boys, 3 and 1, it's nice knowing that dinner is "under control"!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 2 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 bacon strips, diced
  • 1-1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 small green pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Dash sugar
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large kettle, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Add beef cubes and brown on all sides. Add green pepper and onions; cook until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, paprika, salt, pepper and sugar.

"I made this last week and it was delicious, the only thing I added was a few carrots, it disappeared in a hurry. This soup freezes well too."
