One Pot Winter Warmer

  • Spicy Goulash Soup


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 800g shin beef, cut into 3cm cubes
  • 1 1/2 litres beef stock
  • 1 green chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • ½ tsp caraway seeds
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, seeds removed, sliced
  • 300g potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Soured cream to garnish

Heat the oil over a medium heat in a casserole or heavy saucepan. Add the onion and sauté, but do not brown. When the onions turn transparent, add the beef, garlic, chilli and caraway seeds.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the paprika, stirring constantly to make sure it is absorbed well by the meat.

Return to the heat, add the beef stock and simmer gently for at least 1 1/2 hours.

Check that the meat is cooked by testing a small piece. Add the tomatoes, pepper, potatoes and some salt and pepper and continue simmering for 30 minutes. 

Serve topped with a teaspoon of soured cream.
