Morrocan-spiced Lentils and Beef

Remember when this blog was actually about just me posting my recipes that seemed to work? That was probably like 5 years ago. Let's start that again because I don't have any witty stories or pictures, but this was tasty and Ramona ate it, which is important.

evoo, s + p
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 lb ground beef
2 T tomato paste
1/2 t Ras el Hanout
garlic of some sort
1 1/2 c french lentils, rinsed
28 oz whole or diced tomatoes
2 c chicken stock

Heat a dutch oven and add olive oil until shimmery. Sweat onions + pinch of salt until tender. Brown ground beef and season with salt + pepper. Add in tomato paste, Ras el Hanout, and whatever form of garlic you're using and stir until fragrant (~1 minute). Add in tomatoes and break with a spoon if they're whole. Add lentils and chicken stock as well and then cook for another ~45 minutes - 1 hour until the lentils are tender.
