    1. Prepare the Ingredients:
      • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent.
    2. Brown the Beef:
      • Add the beef chunks to the pot. Cook until all sides are browned. This helps to seal in the flavors.
    3. Add Vegetables:
      • Add the diced beetroots and sliced carrots to the pot. Stir well to combine with the beef and onions.
    4. Season the Stew:
      • Sprinkle the paprika over the mixture. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste. Stir to evenly distribute the seasonings.
    5. Add Liquid Ingredients:
      • Pour in the beef broth and canned diced tomatoes. Add the bay leaves for extra flavor. Stir the stew gently.
    6. Simmer the Stew:
      • Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Let the stew simmer for about 1.5 to 2 hours or until the beef is tender and the flavors are well blended. Stir occasionally.
    7. Check the Seasonings:
      • Taste the stew and adjust the seasonings if necessary. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
    8. Serve:
      • Remove the bay leaves from the stew. Ladle the hearty beef and beetroot stew into bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
    Pro Tips
    • Quality Meat: Opt for well-marbled stew meat; it ensures a melt-in-the-mouth texture after cooking.
    • Slow Simmer: Let the stew simmer on low heat; this slow-cooking method enhances flavors and tenderness.
    • Root Vegetable Choices: Experiment with different varieties of beetroots for varied colors and tastes.
    • Make Ahead: Stews often taste better the next day; consider preparing it in advance for intensified flavors.
