I went to IGA after work with the intent of finding a steak for dinner. Instead, I found a nicely french trimmed lamb shank and decided to make stew.
I added some red wine, crushed tomatoes and brought it to the boil.
I have always wanted to cook lentils and today I did. I googled how to prepare them, thinking that I would have to soak them before cooking. But no, simply rinse with cold water and then I cooked them with a bit of hot water until they were cooked. I like my lentil a little firm and not completely soggy.
