Heat the oil in large saucepan over a medium heat and saute onions till soft, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add peppers, mix and cook 5 minutes. At this stage add tomato puree along with beef, marjoram, bay leaves, paprika, caraway seeds, lemon juice, salt, pepper and 500ml stock.
Increase the heat to high, bring to the boil then reduce heat till soup is only just bubbling and partially cover pan with lid. This soup works best when cooked on the hob for at least three hours. Allow steam to escape from pan so soup can reduce and thicken, topping up with more stock when necessary.
Add potatoes and adjust seasoning 30 minutes prior to end of cooking time. Serve hot with rolls and mayo.
Instead of 3 tablespoons tomato puree you can use 1 tin of chopped tomatoes.
