1 lb (500 g) Extra Lean Ground Beef Sirloin, Round or Extra Lean/Lean Ground Beef

1 large onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 EACH carrot and celery stalk, thinly sliced

¼ cup (50 mL) chopped fresh parsley

2 tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste

2 tbsp (30 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce

½ cup (125 mL) frozen peas


Cook beef, onion, garlic, carrot, celery, mushrooms, paprika, caraway seed and chili pepper flakes in Dutch oven over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until meat is thoroughly cooked and any liquid has evaporated. Drain if desired.

Add potato, broth, parsley, tomato paste and soy sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add peas; simmer for 5 minutes.

Heart-Healthy Makeover: We used an abundance of veggies, lean beef plus sodium-reduced broth for a heart-healthy approach. Hungarian spices, soy sauce and fresh parsley pump up the flavour.
