Goulash soup with minced meat

Although it is not autumn yet, it is time to eat goulash soup again. Because it is a weekday evening the preparation time can not be that long. The best option then is to use minced meat as it is quick to get ready. In terms of time, it can be done in 35-40 minutes depending on how quickly the vegetables can be chopped.
Goulash soup ready to eat.
Ingredients for this goulash soup with minced meat as the base are:
  • 500 g minced meat
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 5 potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 green chili
  • a stock cube
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 500 g of crushed tomatoes
  • 6 dl water
  • garlic
  • Salt and pepper
The base.
Coarsely chopped ingredients.
Before I put in the minced meat, potatoes, peppers, carrots and onions in the pot I smashed the cumin and roasted it for a while while the oil in the bottom of the pot became hot.
I chose to fry minced meat, potatoes, peppers, carrots and onions at once. With this approach I had to stir it for some time, I think that the ingredients can be fried separately.
Right before the crushed tomatoes goes into the pot.
When everything is fried add chili, garlic, salt and pepper before adding the crushed tomatoes and water.
After stirring, then simmer / cook on low heat for 15 minutes. I would say at least 15 but if all the vegetables were in from the beginning it can not cook as much more than that before they start to lose texture and shape.

Finished goulash with garnish.
