This is a smoky, rich, Dutch oven goulash. The cavatappi pasta captures large amounts of this great paprika sauce. While the red pepper and lemon, added towards the end of cooking, add a little freshness which helps balance the sauce. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and some chives.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in the hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high. Add ground beef, black pepper, and salt; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour in tomatoes, beef broth, wine, paprika, garlic, Worcestershire, thyme, caraway seeds, rosemary, and bay leaves. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced to a thick, stew-like consistency, about 45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cavatappi in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 9 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir bell pepper and lemon juice into the beef mixture and cook for 10 minutes more. Stir in cooked pasta to coat.

This was ok. Easy to make, not super flavorful. Also, there’s absolutely no reason to use a dutch oven if you’re going to spend so much time reducing the tomato mixture without the lid on and cook the noodles separately. I added a little extra broth and halfway through cooking time added the dry noodles to the tomato mixture, put the lid on, and let them cook in the tomato mixture. Read More
