  1. Find a big pan with a thick bottom. Pour vegetable oil into it. Add chopped onion into the pan. Cook it for 2-3 minutes and leave it to cool down. Now it’s the right time to add dry red paprika. Leave these ingredients for several minutes.
  2. Preheat the frying pan with the small amount of vegetable oil. Cook the beef in it. You need to fry it, not to stew, so do not cover the pan with a lid.
  3. Put this meat into the pot with the fried onion. Add chopped garlic and thyme. Pour water or broth into the pan as well. Mix all these ingredients slowly. Stew it for 2-2.5 hours. If needed, add more liquid.
  4. Wash the potatoes. Peel the vegetables and cut them into cubes. Add the potatoes into the pot. Cook everything for 5 more minutes and add salt.
  5. Wash and peel the red bell pepper and carrots. Cut the vegetables into slices as well. Add them into the pan together with the tomato sauce.

You`re done. Pour this soup into the bowls and serve with the slices of the homemade bread. Bon Appetite.
