Ingredients 11
Servings 6
Time 20


  • 30
    olive oil
  • 700
    chuck steak, chopped
  • 700
    onions, chopped
  • 30
    Hungarian paprika
  • 2.50
    whole caraway seeds
  • 400
    tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 750
    beef stock
  • 3
    large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2
    salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 100
    sour cream (optional)
  • 30
    fresh Italian parsley, chopped


1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a high temperature and fry half the meat cubes until golden brown all over. It is important to seal the meat quickly over a high temperature in order to retain maximum flavour. Remove from the saucepan and repeat with the remaining meat.

2. Sauté the onion in the same saucepan ? this time over a moderate heat ? until soft and glossy (about 15-20 minutes). Add the paprika, caraway seeds, tomatoes, meat cubes, beef stock and potato cubes and bring to the boil. Reduce the temperature and allow the soup to simmer until the meat is soft and almost falling apart. Season with salt and black pepper. To add richness stir sour cream into the soup. Garnish with Italian parsley and serve.

Tip: This soup can be garnished with pancakes cut into strips or cooked fettucine.
