    wyomugs's Note:

    This is nutritious, flexible, and delicious! I adapted it from my trusty Mennonite Cookbook recipe, and our family loves it and always asks for more! It goes "viral" everytime I make it for a church gathering or some other food-fest! ENJOY!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In large skillet or dutch oven, brown beef and onions, and drain fat. If you choose the Smoked Sausage or Kielbasa, slice into 1/3-1/2 thick slices and brown.
    2. 2
      Sort lentils and wash.
    3. 3
      Add lentils and ALL remaining ingredients to meat mixture.
    4. 4
      Bring to boil, cover, and turn down to simmer. Simmer 45 mins, stirring every 15 mins or so and adding water if necessary. Most all water should be absorbed with only a little "sauce" left when ready to serve. Remove bay leaves, serve with bread and salad for complete meal.

      I followed the recipe as posted and used ground turkey. It turned out good. It is very much like a chili meal, though, I didnt think it had a lot of flavor. The family liked it though, adding crackers, shredded cheese and a little plain greek yogurt (tastes like sour cream) toppings. Served with salad. It was a great use of lentils but I probably would not make again.

      This was such an easy and tasty dish! I used smoked venison sausage for the meat. I also plan to try it with hamburger next time... and there will be a next time! Thanks, Wyomugs! Made for PAC fall 2011
