After being out hunting from sunrise until sunset, I was trying to think of something suitable to eat.  As I shivered while pondering, it occurred to me…SOUP!  So, then one of the hunters in our group, Coral Maxwell, made goulash, and that got me thinking…is there a goulash soup recipe for those cold nights after being out all day?  Well, yes, there is!  And, even better yet, it includes wild game meat!

Check out this recipe I found, and let us know what you think:

Wild Game Goulash Soup Recipe


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lb ground deer/elk meat
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 (10 ounce) can condensed beef broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup egg noodles (optional)


  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown meat in vegetable oil until it is no longer pink, about 8 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add onion, pepper and celery. Saute until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour over meat and vegetables and cook for 2 minutes, stirring a few times.
  4. Add paprika, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir.
  5. Add potatoes, beef broth and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes until potatoes are almost done. Add egg noodles and cook for an additional 5 minutes until done.
  6. Garnish with sour cream, chopped fresh dill and serve with pickles.
