A delicious winter stew that is packed full of protein. Stewing steak is simmered with lentils, turnip, spices, raisins and figs. The dried fruit marries all the flavours together. Enjoy with mashed potatoes, if desired.
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 US | 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 US | 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 US | Canada)
