Beef Goulash Soup

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

A delicious hearty soup best served as a main meal with crusty bread, this is even better the next day! -- for a lighter beef flavor use 3 cups beef broth and 2 cups water, I have listed the chili flakes as optional so you may omit if desired or adjust to suit heat level, my family likes extreme heat so I use a scant tablespoonful :)

Loved this hearty soup! I strayed a bit from the original recipe and changed a few ingredients. Added smoked brat sausage pieces and subbed barley for the potatoes.The husband does not like the taste of caraway seeds for made a hald batch for him w/o. Also tried the "Wolfgang Puck" brand beef! It was so full of flavors that I cut back on the seasoning salt and worcestershire sauce. Kitten...this soup was served together crusty peasant bread right out of the oven and was a great hit! Thanks so much for posting! =) Barb
