Bacon and paprika steak pasta tips

With the recipe, you will be layering flavours by cooking individually which takes about 10 minutes before letting it simmer for a while. The beef ends up being super tender depending on the cut you use and the paprika boosts the flavour to a new level. Be aware of using smoked paprika as it can overpower the taste. Serve your your braised steak with pasta or rice. Add a garnish of parsley, garlic and lemon zest.
