4 cups lentils
4 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 bag carrots, chopped
2 bouillon cubes
1/2 cup vinegar
Saute onion and chopped bacon in oil. I like to do this in a
pressure cooker, you will know the reason in a moment. Add chopped
sausage, lentils, bouillon cubes, and about six cups of water.
Heat mixture thoroughly, stirring occasionally, adding water as
the lentils soak it up so that you have a stew consistency. Add
1/4 cup of the vinegar and cook for about 1 hour. Add the carrots
after 1 hr of cooking.
This is where the pressure cooker comes in. If you don't have one,
you'll have to continue cooking until the lentils are soft, about
2 1/2 hrs. If you do have a pressure cooker, after the 1 hr regular
cooking, pressure cook the mixture for about 15 min. Season to
taste with salt, pepper and the rest of the vinegar.
