"I was leery about cooking the hamburger for 60 minutes with the lentils but it was too easy to not try. Worked great!! I added worcestershire sauce as we like that flavor in sloppy joes. Just check the lentils to make sure they are cooked to your liking. I think I added a few extra minutes to make sure they were done how I liked them.

I'm making it again today."
