A classic beef stew, slow cooked with the mellowness of paprika.

Super tender… you can mash the beef cubes with a fork. Perfect for bariatric eating. I serve with a side dish of pan roasted parsnips & carrots – boil peeled vegetables until tender and finish to golden in olive oil salt and pepper. Delicious.
