After another bitterly cold winter's day, I thought this simple soup from Kalyn's Kitchen would be the perfect thing to come home to:
And here's what I made:
With all the paprika in this, it has a good kick to it, though it's not hot per se. The beef was a new texture to me, and a nice addition to the soup, and despite how oily the photo from the original site was, it wasn't greasy at all.
I used a combination of pimenton (smoked paprika) and regular paprika, and I inadvertently added fennel seeds instead of caraway seeds, but it tasted great anyway! I ended up throwing in the whole cabbage, since I couldn't think of any other use for the half I'd otherwise have had leftover. Because of the extra cabbage, I added in an extra couple of cups of water, which I used to rinse out the tomato cartons.
Ease Of Preparation:
This is easy to prepare, but be aware it takes about 2 hours to cook, so don't get caught unawares like I did and come home from work hoping to have something in an hour! I ended up cutting the cooking time to 2 lots of 45 mins rather than 2 lots of 1 hour before I passed out from hunger ;o)
I would say I got 6 dinner sized servings out of this, but then I did use extra cabbage, plus the extra fluid.
This was nice and warming both in temperature and with the paprika, and I think will make a definite addition to the winter dinner rota.
