Now also available as a rice mince pot on the blog.
800 g potatoes
2 peppers (red, yellow or orange)
1 piece of onion
some olive oil
500 g ground beef
100 ml red wine optional
3 tbsp tomato paste
2 cloves of garlic
500 ml beef broth
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 teaspoon hot pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika optional
some salt & pepper
some starch or sauce thickener if needed
3 tbsp parsley
First peel the potatoes, wash them and cut them into bite-sized cubes. Wash and core the paprika and cut into Small cubes. Peel onions and cut them into fine pieces.
Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan and fry the minced meat in it until crumbly. Roast the onions, garlic and tomato paste briefly and deglaze with red wine.
Add paprika and potato cubes and sauté. In the meantime, stir the stock (approx. 500 ml boiling water and 2 tsp instant stock) and add to the potatoes. Add herbs and spices and let the stew simmer for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked.
Finally, you can thicken the farmer’s pot a little and sprinkle parsley over it. *See note
If you like it a little spicier, you can also add a little chili to the farmer’s pot.
Instead of wine, you can also use a sip of red wine vinegar. But be careful with the amount and add sparingly.
You can use dark sauce thickeners if you prefer the stew a little less runny. Alternatively, you can mix some starch in a little COLD water and add it.
