DIRECTIONS

  • Put the lentils in a small sauce pot and pour in 4 cups beer. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until lentils are soft. Drain and set aside.
  • About 10 minutes before the lentils are done boiling, preheat a medium sauce pan pot over medium heat. Saute the onion and pepper in the oil (~ 7 minutes), until softened.
  • Add the garlic and saute a minute more.
  • Add the cooked lentils, and the the rest of the spices (except the maple syrup & dried mustard). Stir gently until just combined.
  • Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the maple syrup and mustard and heat through.
  • Turn the heat off and let sit for about 10 minutes, so that the flavors can meld, or go ahead and eat immediately if you can’t wait. I like to serve these open faced, with a scoop of sloppy joe on each slice of the bun.
