Crock Pot Honey Curried Lentils

Submitted by: FDOODLES

Introduction

This is a modification of the recipe "Honey Baked Lentils" by user CHESSAKAT. I added lean ground beef and put it all in my crock pot. This is a modification of the recipe "Honey Baked Lentils" by user CHESSAKAT. I added lean ground beef and put it all in my crock pot.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 lb extra-lean ground beef
    1 cup lentils
    2.5 cups water
    3 cups cooked rice (I used minute rice the first time)
    2 tbsp honey
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp walnut oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp powdered ginger
    1/4 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp lemon & pepper salt
    sprinkle of crushed red pepper
    1 tsp cumin
    1.5 tsp curry powder

Directions

Brown the ground beef in a skillet, rinse or drain well. Combine with the rest of the ingredients (except the rice) in a small crock pot. You can use fresh onions instead of onion powder, but all I had was the powder. I also estimated the water, may have to use more or less depending on desired texture. Cook on low 4-5 hours. Add the cooked rice just before serving. Makes approximately 6 servings, 1 cup each.

    I hate changing recipes, but is there a sub for the walnut oil? I really want to try this and that oil is kinda spendy. - 7/22/09

    You can use any oil you like, olive or vegetable oil will work just fine. I used walnut oil because that was all I had.

  • Frankie, you are right about the cooked verses dry lentils. What I do when entering ingredients for a recipe is cross-check the calories with the nutrition information on the package of lentils or whatever, which usually specifies dry or cooked. - 3/28/10

  • This recipe is fabulous. I am trying to loose weight with a couple of work colleagues and I made this and brought it to work for lunch - we all really enjoyed it....but can someone please tell me how I can now get this into my Meal Planner? I have tried to find how, but haven't been successful. - 9/8/09

  • I actually used lean ground turkey and the total is near 620 calories. I did the calculations because I was subbing the turkey. I use http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_an
    alysis.php so I am going to go with a small serving (1/12th of the recipe) tonight, since it's made. Sparks accuracy? - 6/2/09

    It's possible that when I selected 1 cup of lentils on spark's recipe calculator, it meant cooked, when I meant uncooked. Also, I use the lowest calorie choice for the ground beef, as I drain mine with hot water to remove any grease.
