Braised Lentils

    This was a delicious side dish for the "Pan-Grilled Flank Steak with Chermoula." I made just half the recipe since it was a side dish, and used beef broth (and only 1/4 cup of liquid was water-I used broth for almost all the liquid). My only other change was to remove the onion and cut it into slices, then put it back in. Why waste the flavor?

    Excellent basic treatment. I'm planning to use this technique with other recipes. We're not vegetarians; I served it with grilled sausages and a salad of romaine, blue cheese, and toasted almonds.

    A nice preparation for lentils - loved the spice from the cloves, but would simply stir in ground cloves next time. Agree that discarding the onion seems like a waste. Served with sauteed escarole.
