I created this on a busy hockey weekend - I wanted something warm to come home to after spending a long day at the hockey rink. This was just the ticket... and I got to clean out my cupboards too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef.
  2. Combine all ingredients in 4-5qt crock pot.
  3. Cook on low at least 12 hours or high for 6 hours. I do a combination of high/low, when I made this I did low for 5 hours and high for 4 hours.
  4. Remove bay leaves before serving.
  5. *Note: when I saved the leftovers, I added another cup of water to prevent it from becoming too thick the next day. It made very yummy leftovers!

Easy recipe to throw together in the morning, put it all in the crock pot and let it simmer throughout the day. I substituted red beans for the lentils and I did add 2 extra cups of beef broth to make it soupier.

Great recipe! It was easy to follow and taste great. I browned the onions and garlic first, then browned the ground beef, and then added in the other ingredents. I mixed everything well before placing it into the crock pot. Using the crock pot bag liners made clean up so easy.
