Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Chop onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add chopped garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Mix in ground beef, season with salt, pepper, and paprika, and simmer until tender, occasionally stirring with a wooden spatula.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
