Introduction

This is as close to what I think my grandmother made as I can get. She may have used stew beef. Both of my grandmothers and my mother always would have added cabbage. I saw other recipes on Spark with Ham or Bacon. I don't think we had kale when I was a kid, but I added it to get it used up. I used store bought broth with 800 mg of sodium.

Ingredients

    *Lean Ground Sirloin 10% Fat, 9 oz (remove)
    Red Lentils, 0.75 cup
    *Potato, raw, 2 medium (2-1/4" to 3-1/4" dia.), lg. dice
    Kale, 2 cup, chopped (remove)
    Cabbage, fresh, 2 cup, chopped (remove)
    Bay Leaf, 2 leaves
    Thyme, ground, 1 tsp (remove)
    Oregano, ground, 1 tsp (remove)
    Basil, 1 tbsp (remove)
    *Beef Broth - Swanson, 24 oz (remove)
    Celery, raw, 1 cup, diced (remove)
    Carrots, raw, 1 cup, chopped (remove)

Tips

This is a main dish soup or stew. May add dumplings or serve with biscuits or corn bread.


Directions

Brown 90% lean ground sirloin in skillet. Drain on paper towel if indicated, then add to Crock Pot set on high. Rinse the red lentils, drain, and spread over the ground beef. Add the rest of the veggies in order listed. You can add a little more or a little less of the veggies. I tend to add more. If it appears too dry after cooking 4 hours on low, add heated water, 1 cup at a time. I tend to like more of a stew, and less a soup.

Serving Size: Divide the total amount into fourths to get one serving. May vary depending on ingredients you use.
