    1. In a Dutch oven or heavy skillet heat the olive oil over high heat.
    2. Season the beef with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper.

    5. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
    6. Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
    7. Add the tomatoes, water, bay leaf, crushed red pepper and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt.
    8. Return the beef to the pan and bring the sauce to a boil.
    9. Reduce the heat to medium-low, partially covered and let the beef cook for 45 minutes.
    10. Add the potatoes and sweet potato and cook until they are easily pierced through with a fork (about 45 minutes)
    11. Add the parsley. Serve immediately.
