  • 1/4 cup sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin

How to make this recipe

  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.
