Everybody loves a winter stew that's healthy and good for you. The mix of beef and lentils will make this stew a wonderfully filling winter dinner. You might like to make double quantities so you have leftovers the next day!
Start by adding the olive oil and onion to a pot over medium heat and saute for 3 minutes, until the onion starts to go translucent. Then add the garlic, carrot and celery and saute for another 2 minutes, until the onion and garlic is golden.
Brown off the beef by adding it to the pot and cooking for approximately 5 minutes.
Add the rinsed lentils, diced tomatoes and beef stock to the saucepan and mix well to combine.
Leave to simmer for 20-25 minutes until everything has softened and cooked through.
Remove from the heat, mix through salt and pepper and serve.
You can cook this in a slow cooker and cook on slow overnight if you prefer. If so, you might like to add a little water so it doesn't dry out.
