My mother received this recipe while briefly living in Germany many years ago. A hearty stew that can easily be modified by adding veggies of your choice! I can eat this stew all year long!

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir beef and onion in hot oil until meat is browned, about 10 minutes. Add water, tomato sauce, paprika, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, beef bouillon, mustard, lemon juice, and bay leaf. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer over low heat until beef is very tender, 2 to 3 hours.

  • Stir potatoes into soup and continue to simmer until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes more. For a thicker soup, leave the pot uncovered; for a thinner soup, replace lid.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Serve soup over egg noodles in bowls.

The recipe seemed very easy to make however the flavor profile was a so-so. There was to much acidity to the recipe and no amount of spices or a tad of sugar helped. I would leave out the vinegar and lemon juice and beef up the spices with a seasoned tomato sauce. My family didn't much say it was great or good it was "ahhh it's okay" Meaning they really didn't care for it much. Sorry this recipe needs some good tweaking to become a really good recipe. As is I'm sorry to say won't me making again. Read More
