    Rev: Slow Cooker Lentils with Rosemary and garlic

    I found this in a search for slow cooker recipes. It simmered all day and smelled really good when we came home Just didn't taste very garlic-y...
    I searched and could not find a review....Also, cooked on low instead of high......

    Understand, when you eat meat, that something did die. You have an obligation to value it - not just the sirloin but also all those wonderful tough little bits.

    How long did you let it cook on low?

    Sounds like an interesting recipe, but I'm wondering if I need to try it on a weekend when I'm able to let it cook for a shorter time period.

    Thanks,

    I just wanted to add that although I halved the recipe, i did not half the beef stock. My work carries it in 16 oz sizes, so I used the full 16 ounces and reduced the water accordingly

    Thank you, glad to hear I can cut it in half. I have never made lentils and bought some a long time ago and was just thinking, now what do I do with them.

    Oh thank you for posting! I have been using my crock pot about 2-3 times per week and looking for more recipes! This one is right up my alley.
