Set out a Dutch oven, or a electric skillet, or a 3-quart sauce pot having a tight fitting cover. Prepare meat broth and set aside. Dice the bacon and place in the skillet or Dutch oven, cook slowly, stirring and turning frequently, until the bacon is lightly browned.

Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon an put in a small bowl and set aside.

Add the chopped onion to the bacon fat in the skillet, or Dutch oven and cook over medium heat until the onion is transparent, stirring occasionally. Remove the onion with a slotted spoon to the bowl containing the bacon and set aside.

Add the meat to the bacon fat and slowly brown on all sides, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon paprika, salt, pepper, and the marjoram over the meat mixture. Stir in the bacon-onion mixture with the chopped green or red pepper.

Slowly pour in the meat broth and white wine. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 2 to 2-½ hours, or until the meat is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove the meat with a slotted spoon to a heavy serving dish.

Thicken the cooking liquid by pouring ½ cup water and ¼ cup flour into a screw top jar. Shake until the mixture is well blended.

Slowly pour one half of the mixture into the sauce pot, stirring constantly. Bring to boiling. Gradually add only what is needed of the remaining flour-water mixture for consistency desired. Bring to boiling after each addition. Cook 3 to 5 minutes longer.

Without the Hungarian Paprika it tastes like fecal matter.
