5 bacon slices
3 pounds boneless beef chuck, trimmed and cut into ¼ inch cubes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 medium , finely chopped onions
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons paprika (preferably Hungarian sweet)
1 ¼ teaspoons caraway seeds
1/3 cup flour
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup tomato paste
5 cups beef broth (Swanson’s is fine)
3 - 4 cups water
½ tsp. salt
2 red bell peppers cored, seeded and finely chopped
2 ½ pounds russet potatoes (4 large), cut up bite size
3 - 4 carrots chopped

Cook bacon in a very large 8-quart pot until crisp. Transfer to a large bowl. (I squeeze the oil off with a paper towel). Brown beef in small batches in the bacon fat and transfer to the large bowl. Pour off any remaining bacon fat and add oil to pot. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden. Stir in paprika, caraway seeds and flour and cook, stirring for a couple of more minutes. Add vinegar and tomato paste and cook. Stir in stock, water, salt, bell peppers, beef, bacon, potatoes and carrots. Cover and simmer for another 1 - 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
