Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from meat. Cut into
    3/4-inch pieces. For a richer
    soup, cook beef in a nonstick
    skillet over medium-high heat
    until browned; otherwise, use
    uncooked meat. Place in a
    31/2- or 4-quart slow cooker.
    Stir in broth, lentils, 1 cup
    water, sweet pepper, onion,
    carrot, celery, garlic, cumin
    and cayenne.

  • Cover and cook on HIGH for
    31/2 to 4 hours or LOW for 7 to
    8 hours. Stir in parsley. Ladle
    soup into bowls.

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
