Nutritional values

With plenty of protein, beef is not only well received by athletes, as we need this nutrient not only for muscle building but also for the formation of cells, messenger substances and antibodies. The meat also scores points with about 2.5 milligrams of iron per 100 grams of beef, covering a quarter of the daily requirement. We need iron for the formation of blood and optimal oxygen transport in the body.

The popular goulash soup comes from Hungary and is traditionally prepared without vegetables. However, as you can always use an extra portion of vitamins, secondary plant substances and satisfying dietary fibre, we have added zucchini and paprika to the smart goulash soup. You can also replace and supplement these with celery, aubergine or other vegetables.

Rinse the beef, pat dry and cut into bite-sized cubes. Peel the onions and the garlic and finely chop. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and brown the meat on all sides. Add the onions and garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, sauté briefly and pour in the broth. Add bay leaf, lemon zest, caraway seeds, paprika and marjoram and season with salt and pepper. Peel potatoes, rinse and dice into small pieces.
