Uruguay Claims World Record with World’s All-Time Biggest Lentil Stew

MONTEVIDEO – For the second consecutive year, Montevideo has cooked the world’s biggest lentil stew, a concoction of 3,345 kilogram, exceeding the 2,365 kilogram record set in September 2015.

Simmering for two and a half hours in a pot of 5 meters in diameter, the stew consisted of 150 kilos of meat, bacon and chorizo, 600 kilos of lentils, 350 kilos of potatoes, 115 liters of tomato puree, 65 kilos of onion, 60 liters of oil, 13 kilos of salt and 3 kilos of paprika and oregano, to make the biggest stew, excepted to provide some 12,000 servings.

The project, promoted by Daniel Rama, director of the food distributor Emigrante, was the central attraction at the 111th International Exhibition of Livestock and Agro Industrials (Expo Prado), an important tradition in this South American country.

Rama told EFE that they tried to challenge their own record and managed to break it. He also noted that he was “very happy” with the idea, explaining that the stew is “very Uruguayan.”

The organizers expect to shelve out about 12,000 servings, which will be sold for 50 pesos ($1.70) each and the profits will go to the Telethon Foundation of Uruguay, dedicated primarily to rehabilitation of children and adolescents with neuromusculoskeletal disorders.
