Simple and nothing fancy... for a Goulash soup dinner.
The soup, made after an old family recipe does not need any commercial additives like stock cubes.
It needs, beef about 150 to 200 g per person cut into cubes.
2 medium potatoes and a couple of large carrots, 2 big onions.
3-4 tblsp sweet paprika, home made herb salt, 1 tblsp organic tomato paste, my secret ingredient add 1 tbsp of a very good curry powder while braising meat and onions; a few laurel leaves dried or fresh; Water; sour cream and hot chilie jam served extra to spice up the soup for the ones who like it HOT!
Beautiful Soup! Who cares for fish,
Game, or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two
Pennyworth only of Beautiful Soup?
Pennyworth only of beautiful Soup?
From a poem by Louis Carroll.
Fresh bread from the oven is a must!
A couple of reds; Coonawarra was always a palatable wine, this one was a nice Shiraz and went well with the soup.
Dessert was Almond Orange cake. This was the leftover..
As we have now so many Navel Oranges, I cooked two big oranges skin and all as they are not sprayed nor waxed, until pulpy and mixed them with 250 g of ground almonds, 150 g caster sugar and 5 whole eggs' and 1 teasp, baking powder; presto, bake on 190 C for at least half an Hour. Top with a chocolate ganache made from 100 g of Lind 85 % cocoa a small lump of butter and some cream. You can make this cake a few days ahead as it is getting better day by day!
At this time the guests have left...
All had a jolly good time!
