This was very good. Actually even better the next day! The word hearty really does describe this, I would even classify it as a stew. When I make this the next time, I will not cook the veggies as long. I think 45 minutes total would probably work. I would simmer the beef, seasonings and bouillon for the same amount of time, but would not add the veggies and lentils until later. Because they ended up being too overcooked. But, with these changes I think think this would be a 5 star recipe! Thank you for sharing!
