How to Prepare

  1. Put the olive oil in a large casserole dish on low heat. When it is hot, add garlic, onion, carrot, fennel, tomatoes and chili. Fry the vegetables very gently until the garlic and onion are golden and translucent. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and keep aside.
  2. Return the casserole to high heat and sear the steak on all sides.
  3. Turn down the heat to medium, and return the cooked vegetables to the pan with the lentils. Cook them together for 20 secs, stirring all the time.
  4. Season with the MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon Less Salt cubes and crushed black pepper.
  5. Pour over the red vinegar and water to cover; bring to boil, and then turn down the heat to low.
  6. Cover and simmer gently for 1½ hrs. Serve immediately.
