A little on the sweet side. I would reduce the amount of raisins and also chop the figs into very small pieces. For some reason my meat turned out a bit too chewy even though I followed the directions to a T. Perhaps next time I would shorten the browning time in the pan. That being said it's an interesting twist on stew and has lots of great flavor.
Very good! I took other member's advise and cut the figs really small. I am a true believer of flavor so I tripled the spices plus I added another 1/4 cup of turnip (3/4 cup). It was a really big hit! I cook for my boyfriend and our employee for LUNCH everybody LOVED it. I also changed things around for the crockpot. I cooked the beef in the chicken stock (plus about 3/4 cup) in the crockpot overnight on the "warm" setting. Once I arrived at work (7:30am) I added the turnips and lentils and placed the cooker on low. About an hour before serving I added the raisins and figs. Everyone loved it!
