Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Heat a large, heavy pot with olive oil. Brown the meat on all sides and remove to the plate. It is important to work with jams and not to put all the meat in the batter.
Chop the onion into large cubes and peel the carrots, and the potatoes. Cut the carrots into sections, and if the potatoes are small enough, they can be left as is.
Add a little more olive oil to the saucepan and fry the onion until softened. Add the carrots and fry them too.
Mix the paprika in oil for a few seconds and mix with the onion and carrot. Add tomato paste, mix it with the pot contents.
Add the wine and water and stir. Add the meat (and its juices), potatoes, garlic, bay leaf, thyme and brown sugar. Close the lid, bring to a boil and transfer to the oven for an hour and a quarter (at least), until the potatoes and meat are softened. After an hour and a quarter, check the stew and salt.
