Ingredients

  • 600 g stewing beef | trimmed and cut into 2 cm cubes

  • 4 onion | yellow

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 3 tablespoons clarified butter 

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 150 ml red wine

  • 700 ml beef broth 

  • 2 teaspoons paprika powder | hot - spicy

  • 3 tablespoons paprika powder | sweet

  • 1 tablespoon sugar 

  • 3 teaspoons majoram | dried

  • 3 bay leaves

  • 4 large potatoes

  • 2 red & 1 yellow bell pepper

  • salt & pepper

Directions

  • Gather and prepare the ingredients

    Squeeze fresh juice from 1 orange and 2 clementines. Thoroughly wash the other orange and cut into thin slices. Place all the spices, brown sugar, and orange slices (keep a few for later as decoration) in a medium size pot.

  • Add freshly squeezed juice and red wine

    Add the orange and clementine juice into the pot with all the spices and sugar. Next, add 750 ml red wine (one bottle) and give it a little stir.

  • Heat the wine mixture 

    Heat the wine mixture over medium-low heat until it almost reaches the point of simmer. Avoid letting the wine mixture come to a bubble, otherwise, the alcohol from the wine will start to evaporate. When foam is starting to form on the edges of the pot, reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid, and let the wine mixture sit on low heat for 30 min.

    Finally, add 250 ml of Cointreau (orange liqueur), stir, and let the wine mixture sit on low heat for another 5 min.

  • Strain and serve

    Strain the wine mixture with a fine-mesh strainer and discard the cooked spices and orange slices. Serve hot and add fresh orange slices and spices for decoration.
