Start with beef - in a medium or large skillet heat up a little bit of oil over medium heat. When the skillet is warm, add ground beef, salt, and pepper to taste and cook until golden brown. Set aside.
In the same skillet add onion and cook until translucent. Follow with grated carrot and cook until the carrot becomes soft.
Add tomato sauce/paste and veggie stock or a bouillon cube mixed in water and give it a good stir. Let the carrots and onions simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Follow with cabbage, add salt, pepper, and paprika. Stir well to combine all the ingredients and let simmer under a closed lid (stirring occasionally) until cabbage becomes soft.
Return the cooked beef, stir, garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or chives and serve while hot.
