    About this recipe: My boyfriend lived in Serbia for 3 years and I wanted to recreate a dish he talked about enjoyed so much. It's like a hot pot but has more spices and different vegetables. Great with a glass of red wine!

    • 450g beef mince
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 green pepper, chopped
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1 carrot, grated
    • 2 celery sticks, chopped
    • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 teaspoon fresh black pepper
