Quick Smokey Beef Goulash

This stew is even better made ahead. If you have smoked paprika in the pantry, add a teaspoon to the pot.


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 400 g lean beef mince
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 red or green capsicum, cut into strips
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 420 g can tomato soup
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp bbq sauce or tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • black pepper
  • 4 cups cooked pasta, of your choice


  1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large saucepan. Add the mince, garlic, capsicum and red onion. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring, over a moderate heat. Add oregano and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Remove the lid.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients. Bring to simmer, then reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes or so until the soup reduces into the thickness of a sauce. Season with pepper. Due to the salty nature of the soup you probably won’t need to add salt but check and add if needed.
  3. Serve with cooked pasta.
