Hardy and easy stew that will warm you on a cold winters day and fill your belly without emptying your wallet. My family in Germany uses smoked and salted pork belly but smoked bacon works very well, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice potatoes and carrots small.
  2. Ad lentils, potatoes and carrots and the bacon or pork belly slices in a large pot, season and boil with 2 cups of broth and 1 cup of water for approximately 1 hour. Ad the remaining 1 cup ounce by ounce if stew gets too thick over time.
  3. Stew is best re-heated the next day :D if you want it quicker just let stew cool down and re-heat. Stew should be very thick with little liquid.
