  1. Heat oil in large saucepan on medium heat. Crumble in beef. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 8 min. until beef is browned. Drain and discard fat from saucepan. Stir onion, garlic and paprika into beef. Cook 5 min. until onion is softened. Stir in broth, tomatoes, potatoes and bay leaves; cover and bring to a simmer. Cook 8 to 10 min. until potatoes are softened (they do not need to be cooked through at this point).
  2. Stir in chopped vegetables. Simmer another 10 min. until vegetables and potatoes are tender. Stir in vinegar. Remove bay leaves before serving.

Substitute potatoes with sweet potato, short pasta or 1/2 cup (125 mL) long grain rice.
