This is a very tasty recipe. I will definitely make it again. Only reason for 4 stars is that the 20 min cooking time in a pressure cooker is far too long. My vegetables turned to mush, almost like a paste. I checked similiar recipes and found that it's better to cook lentils, dried herbs, and beef broth (instead of water)for 8-10 min under high pressure, by themselves. Reduce pressure. Then add remaining ingredients & cook at high for 7 min. I also added 1/2 tsp ginger, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp thyme, & 2 bay leaves. Extra herbs add a bit of extra zest & flavor. So try this, but cook alter the cooking times so lentils cook by themselves before adding veggies. Nutrious & tasty.
This is really excellent and a very filling, nutritious dinner when combined with a loaf of crusty multi-grain bread. I don't have a pressure cooker, so I used my crockpot and let it cook on low all day. Also used ground turkey since lamb wasn't available. I'm going to try this again with the lamb, but we loved it either way! EDITED to reflect that, at MaryAnne's recommendation, I tried this with the lamb. A definite 5 star recipe!!!
