    1. 1
      In a large stewpot, heat the butter (or bacon grease or lard) until melted.
    2. 2
      Add the beef chunks in small portions and brown on all sides (but not cook all the way through yet);remove each batch as it browns to a covered dish and set aside for now.
    3. 3
      In the same pan, add the bacon, onion, and garlic and saute a few minutes until they begin to wilt and brown, maybe 5-10 minutes or so.
    4. 4
      Return the meat to the pan, and sprinkle with paprika.
    5. 5
      Whisk in the tomato paste until blended,stirring the whole time.
    6. 6
      Add just a little of the broth and bring to a boil,stirring.
    7. 7
      Repeat with a little more broth, after it boils, add the rest of the broth along with the lemon zest.
    8. 8
      Reduce the heat to low, cover, and let stew about 80 minutes.
    9. 9
      In the last 5 minutes of cooking time, add the diced peppers and the marjoram.
    10. 10
      Test for flavor now- adding as much salt& pepper as you prefer.
    11. 11
      TIP: If you like your peppers to be a little softer, just let it cook a little longer or add them a little sooner.
    12. 12
      Serve ladled over bowls of hot, buttered egg noodles or spaetlze.

      Let me comment it with the words of KC & The Sunhine Band "That's the way, aha aha I like it aha aha." :-) Great taste! The beef is soft and melts in your mouth and you can freeze and microwave it, if there are left-overs.

      This is a great authentic recipe! Anyone who says differently doesn't know what it's supposed to taste like. I was born and raised in Schwarzwald and this is exactly how I remember. Served with homemade spaetzle. Thank you!
