To speed up this brothy goulash soup, Grace Parisi uses quick-cooking ground beef instead of the more traditional chunks of beef chuck.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 large onion, finely chopped
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1/4 cup sweet Hungarian paprika
  5. 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, chopped
  6. 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  7. 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  8. One 14-ounce can diced tomatoes
  9. 1 cup thinly sliced roasted red peppers
  10. 1 quart low-sodium beef broth
  11. Salt
  12. Freshly ground pepper
  13. 4 ounces wide egg noodles (2 cups)
  14. Crème fraîche or sour cream, for serving
  1. In a large Dutch oven or pot, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened. Add the paprika and caraway and cook for 1 minute. Add the beef and cook, breaking up the meat, until no longer pink, 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes with their juices, red peppers, broth and 1 cup of water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to boil. Cover partially and simmer for 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan of salted boiling water, cook the noodles until al dente. Drain.
  3. Add the noodles to the soup and cook for 2 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with a dollop of crème fraîche.

Suggested Pairing

Rich, spicy Italian red, like Aglianico.
