1 pound lean beef cubes
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper, to taste
1 dash paprika
1 onion cut into small chunks
oil for browning meat
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
2 cans beef broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 cup dry red wine


Mix flour, salt,pepper and paprika in a dish or paper bag. Add the beef cubes and shake to coat them well. Remove meat from bag and brown in a frying pan with a little oil. When brown, put the meat in a pot large pot. Add the onion, garlic, tomato paste, broth and wine. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer-cover with a lid and simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours until tender, stirring once in a while-you may need to add a little water if too much broth cooks out.

Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or noodles. You can also add cubed, peeled potatoes and carrots the last hour of cooking time if desired. A green salad and rolls to go with the beef cubes and vegetables.

Th beef turned out very tender! Instead of the tomato paste and red wine I used just the same measurement of tomato sauce since I had an open can.

I used smoked paprika and added some cayenne pepper to the flour mixture. Cooked it for 1 1/2 hours just under a simmer.

Easy and yummy. I already had the ingredients (used jarred garlic, extra tomato paste, and lots of paprika) and it turned out to be a hit with my small children and husband. I served it over wide egg noodles. Hint, I used 2 pounds of beef cubes and same sauce recipe and it turned out great. Plus it was good reason to open a bottle of wine for dinner. :) I will definitely make this again. I'm adding it to my "easy recipes when I don't know what to make with ingredients I already have in my house" folder.
