I found this on facebook and had to save it here, it was so good:

I know the ingredient combination may sound odd, but the taste is delicious!
You can just put the dried red lentils into the stew without precooking them, they will be done. I let the stew cook in the crock pot on high for 4 hours, but I think 5 hours might have been even better.
