Goulash Soup (Gulaschsuppe)

Diana Perry


This is a Winter favorite at our house. I serve with a nice crusty bread, and usually a salad. It could also be served with some spaetzle or egg noodles.

How to Make Goulash Soup (Gulaschsuppe)


  1. Brown the beef in the butter over medium high heat; add the onions and peppers and saute until onions are golden.
  2. Stir in the tomato paste, 1-1/4 C of the water, paprika and garlic powder; simmer, covered, for 1 hours.
  3. Add 5 cups of the water and the bouillon cubes; stir well and then simmer another 30 minutes.
  4. Make a paste with the cornstarch and 3 tablespoons cold water and add that to the soup; bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened; add marjoram, Worcestershire and Tobasco sauce. Taste for salt. I don't add any more at this point, but you might want to.
