This Goulash Soup with Red Peppers and Cabbage has ground beef, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and cabbage, and it’s something I’ve been making ever since I discovered how much I love paprika. If you use Hungarian paprika the recipe is reminiscent of Hungarian Gulyas but without potatoes and other higher-carb veggies, and I’m of the opinion that lots of paprika is essential in a soup like this!I used both sharp and sweet paprika (and I prefer Szeged Paprika, but any Hungarian paprika will be good.) You can probably get by with only sweet paprika, especially if you’re making it for kids. This soup freezes especially well, and I like to pull a container of it out of the freezer on a cold night, heat it up, and serve with a big dollop of sour cream!
(Makes 4-6 servings, recipe created by Kalyn)
2 onions, cut half both ways, then in thick slivers
2 tsp. finely minced garlic
1 T olive oil
2 T sweet Hungarian Paprika (I recommend Penzeys)
1 T hot Hungarian Paprika (I recommend Penzeys)
1/2 tsp. crushed caraway seed (optional)
4 cups homemade beef stock (or 3 cans, 14 oz. each)
3 cups roasted tomatoes or 2 cans(14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
2 cups finely diced cabbage
1 lb. lean ground beef (ground chuck is best)
1 jar (12 oz.) roasted red peppers, diced into 1 inch pieces
sour cream for serving (I use light, do not use fat free sour cream with added sugar)
Brown ground beef in frying pan until quite brown, breaking into small pieces as it cooks. When browned add to soup pot. Let simmer on very low heat one hour. (Taste for seasoning and add more paprika if desired. I personally think you can never have too much paprika in a soup like this.)After one hour, add diced red peppers and simmer one hour more. Serve hot, garnished with sour cream. This freezes very well.
