Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and bell peppers to the pot and saute until slightly caramelized, 7 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Stir 2 cups water, beef broth, tomatoes, lentils, mushrooms, tomato paste, vinegar, red pepper flakes, basil, oregano, and black pepper into the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until lentils are tender, about 1 hour. Add boiling water as needed to keep lentils from sticking.

Cook's Note:

You can use ground pork instead of beef.
