2 lb boneless beef, cut in bite-size pieces
3 medium yellow onions, chopped
6 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 of red, orange, and green sweet peppers, cut in 1 inch pieces (or triangles)
Fresh hot pepper (to taste), finely sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tbsp. Butter
Black pepper (to taste)
Freshly dried dill, 2 pinches
1 tbsp sugar
Flour, 2 tsp
Put large skillet on medium heat and melt butter. Add meat in one layer (to brown nicely and evenly).
Then add 1/3 of onions and continue to saute until onions become golden brown. Add 2 of your tomatoes, salt, and black pepper and reduce heat to simmer for 1.5 hours. It should be very soft and tender.
While meat is cooking, saute the rest of onions until golden, and add the rest of tomatoes, sugar, hot and sweet peppers, garlic, salt, and continue to saute for about 10 minutes on low heat, until sweet peppers are almost soft.
Then, add vegetables to meat, add some water (about 1.5 cups), swirl together and let simmer for a couple of minutes.
Finally, mix flour in 1/2 cup of water until smooth and add to meat slowly, constantly stirring, and finish with a dash of dry dill. This will make liquid thicker and more of a sauce consistency. Add salt or pepper for taste.
You can serve it in a bowl as a thick soup, with toast or fresh bread or with pasta.
