1Heat the oil in a large pan and add the steak, sprinkle over the paprika and brown for a few minutes then transfer to sc.
2Add onions to the pan with a large splash of the red wine to loosen any paprika bits and add the chipotle paste if using, saut for a few minutes then add to the sc (I then swish some more red wine round the pan for a minute or two then add this to the sc too).
3Add all the other ingredients to the sc except the pepper chunks and parsley.
4Cook on low for 6 or 7 hrs then add the pepper chunks and cook for a further 1 hour.
5Add the fresh chopped parsley just before serving.
7** Alternative - if you do not wish to use potatoes (I add them to make it a one pot meal) then add 1kg of beef instead of 500g.
