This recipe is a nice addition to the rotation. It's reasonably quick and easy in addition to being tasty. Make sure to leave enough time for the lentils to cook.
Simple to make. I used cubed beef, chicken stock, and fresh tomatoes as I didn't have the listed ingredients at home. It came out good. Thanks for the recipe.
I find that using sliced or cubed beff works much better that ground. All and all this is a very good recipe.
