This was pretty good. The glaze for the meat was really good and I would love to try it on ham as well. My meat was dry, mainly because the timing was way off the way this recipe is written. I needed way more time for the lentils to cook so my meat dried out. Cooking the lentils in the meat water was genius but I needed way more than 3 cups of water! I kept adding water to keep those lentils cooking. Also, BEWARE re the chile sauce. I used less than a quarter cup of Hunan Red Chile sauce and OMG the lentils are HOT. I'd suggesting using an 1/8 to start with. The lentil yield is great, and I'm looking forward to mixing the leftovers with fresh hot rice and kielbasa for tomorrow's dinner. Anyway, even with the dried out meat and slightly undercooked lentils I gave this recipe as written 4 stars. Next time I make it, knowing what I do, it'll be a 5 star meal!
