Success - Article sent! close

1-1 pounds chuck steak or brisket, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 tablespoon sunflower oil

2-3 slices uncooked bacon, chopped

3 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 medium onions, grated (1-2 cups)

2 medium red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded and cut into -inch dice (2-3 cups)

1 tablespoon caraway seeds

1 tablespoon Spanish smoked paprika, preferably hot (as opposed to sweet), plus more for garnish

2 cups low-sodium beef broth

2 tablespoons tomato paste

6 cornichons (baby gherkins), cut crosswise into thin slices

Freshly ground black pepper

Nonfat plain Greek-style yogurt, for serving

Place the meat in a large, resealable plastic food storage bag and add the cornstarch. Seal, and shake to coat evenly.

Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. Add the bacon, garlic, onions, red bell peppers, caraway seeds and paprika; cook for 3 minutes, stirring. Add the beef, then the broth, tomato paste and cornichons; stir to combine. Season with the black pepper. Once the mixture begins to bubble at the edges, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender and the sauce has reduced to a rich consistency.

Serve hot, with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of paprika.

Serves four.

Cook's note: Serve with rice noodles and a green vegetable such as cabbage, green beans or broccoli.
