Beef and lentils are accented with turnip, sultanas and figs. It is a hardy yet easy one pot meal. Serve with potatoes or warm bread.
A little on the sweet side. I would reduce the amount of raisins and also chop the figs into very small pieces. For some reason, my meat turned out a bit too chewy, even though I followed the directions to a T. Perhaps next time I would shorten the browning time in the pan. That being said, it's an interesting twist on stew and has lots of great flavor. - 27 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I loved the flavors but I don't have nutmeg so I changed nutmeg to fenugreek and it was delicious! I also used radish instead of turnip. What a wonderful smell! Mmmm. Thank you! - 12 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I loved this but my husband did not, so I will make this for me on the nights he can not be home. Thank you for the recipe. - 21 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
