DIRECTIONS

  • Heat dutch oven and oil. Brown the onion, garlic and pork for 4 minutes, adding both paprikas half way through.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, bring up to a boil, reduce to a very low simmer and cover. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I don't add any, personally).
  • Let it cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This certainly can cook as long as you have the patience for. Check the level of liquid. If you use a tougher cut let it cook until it is falling apart. The lentils should be added the last 20 minutes.
  • Uncover pot and cook until thick to your liking (15 more minutes for me). It will thicken slightly off the heat -- I let it rest 10 minutes or so before serving.
  • Good garnishes include tomato slices, fresh lime, sour cream (I use #149831) and fresh parsley.
