My mum is German and she would make this filling stew during the winter. We all loved it, so I thought I'd share!

Delicious as written! The meat comes out tender, the lentils are cooked perfectly, as are the potatoes. I did cut the potatoes into 1.5" chunks. I would recommend keeping the lid ON when it's simmering because I noticed too much liquid was evaporating with it halfway covered. This will also thicken up upon cooling. The only thing that I don't see working is cooking this big batch of stew in a skillet. Use a large stockpot! Read More

We loved this! Simple, tasty, makes a ton and cheap. I used fresh rosemary and added a couple of bay leaves to the mix. This is a great hearty stew and is very comforting on this cold and rainy night! Especially with a glass of malbec. Enjoy! Read More

I made it without the flank steak since I didn't have any & because we are in a pandemicand it wasn't enough reason to run to the store. I diced 2 tomatoes instead of the can tomatoes. I didn't have rosemary so I used 1/2 tsp of dried thyme. Also, I love cilantro so I threw a handful of fresh cilantro. I loved it. I'm on a low sodium and fluid restrictions diet so I didn't add salt and used 2 cups of Lino Life low sodium beef broth+1 cup of water. Delicious!!!! Read More

I made this recipe as is pretty much. I had stew meat on hand so that would be the biggest difference. The actual modification was in the procedure I added the lentils and the potatoes last after the beef was cooked to tender fork soft. I also added one bay leaf to the soup and discarded it at the end. Overall very good soup for this chilly autumn temperatures! Will make it again! Read More
