Harissa Spiced Lentils with Steak Tips

Serves 4

2 c. cooked lentils

2 steaks, cut into chunks

1 onion, chopped

2 portabella mushrooms, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c. sherry (or other wine)

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

2 1/2 tsp. harissa

1 tsp. ground coriander

kosher salt


In a large skillet, heat a bit of oil over medium-high heat. Add in meat and onion. Don't stir for 3 minutes, allowing the meat to caramelize. Stir and add in mushrooms, garlic and sherry. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small pan, combine vegetable oil, harissa, coriander and a few pinches of kosher salt. Cook over medium heat for a minute or two; just long enough to allow the spices to blend and merge together. Pour spiced oil over cooked lentils. Toss.

Serve steak tips over a bed of lentils. Enjoy!
