Goulash soup (gulyás leves)

Famous hungarian soup. Many tourist taste it when come to Hungary. I more like it when hot.

Ingredients: 400 g beef shank or chuck 20 mm cubed, 1-2 onion minced, 1 spoonful oil, 1 spoonful paprika powder, 1 clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon of caraway seed and black pepper, salt, 1-3 bay leaf, 1-2 carrot diced, 1 Hungarian green pepper (zöldpaprika) chopped, 2 tomatoes chopped, celery leaf, parsley chopped, 1 parsnip diced, 2 potatoes cubed

Cooking: Cut the onion into small pieces and brown it in hot oil. Add the chopped meat and stir until well browned, powder it with paprika powder and stir well. Add fast a little water a stir more well. Add salt, the clove of garlic, the caraway seeds, black pepper, bay leaf and tomatoes, a little water and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Add enough water to cover the meat well. Add carrot, parsnip, green pepper, celery leaf, parsley and bring to a boil. Turn to low heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add potatoes and more water to soup consistency. Salt to taste. Simmer until potatoes and meat are well cooked.

I like it with hot chili pepper in soup (dried or sauce).

Note: The best way of this dish when make it outdoor, in three legged hanging stew-pot, over fire.
