Ingredients:
1 lb. diced onions
1 lb. beef cubes
1 lb. peeled and cubed potatoes
4 T. oil
5 cloves of minced garlic
3 T. Hungarian or Spanish paprika
¾ tsp. caraway seeds
2 quarts beef stock or water
½ C. diced green bell peppers
½ tsp. marjoram
3 T. beef base or beef granules ( contains salt)
2 T. tomato paste ( optional) gives a deep, red color to your soup
dash of red pepper (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
Heat oil in large kettle, add onions, cook until transparent, add garlic and paprika and immediately add a little stock. Paprika will turn bitter if not diluted with water right away.

Add remaining ingredients, except potatoes and only gradually add the stock as needed. Cover and simmer 30-40 minutes, add potatoes and cook until they are done, 12-20 minutes more.

Guten Appetit!
