Cook onion in oil on medium low heat until soft then add garlic and cook a little longer.
Add carrots, cover and continue to cook on low until they are starting to soften then add
mushrooms and peppers and cook until liquid is starting to evaporate about 20 minutes.
Add tomato, paprika, savory, salt and pepper and cook a little longer then cool before
mixing with meat.
