Pork with potatoes


1.5 lbs meat, cut into cubes (pork, beef or chicken)
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 stick celery, sliced
1 Italian pepper, sliced
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
5 potatoes, cut into cubes
1 can (6-8 oz.) tomato sauce
2 tbsp. parsley
2 cups hot water
1/4 cup oil (optional)


Put the meat in a pan, add the salt and oil, cover and cook at medium heat, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes. Add the carrot and onion to the meat and stir. Add the celery and green pepper in about 5 minutes and stir. In another 5 min. add paprika, water and stir. As you probably have guessed it, stirring is important for this recipe. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Add the potatoes and cook for another 15 minutes. Add the tomato sauce, parsley and stir. Cook for 5 minutes then turn off the heat and let the pan stay on it for another 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
