It was easy & worked great, thanks for posting! I "tripled" the recipe & crock potted on "high" for 8 hours. I live in high altitude & used older dried pinto beans.
Great time-saver. Just what I needed: A hands-free, money-saving, better-for-you way to have beans! I've done this with black beans, red beans, kidney beans...all turn out great. Thanks!
Just found this recipe. Thank You for posting it. Trying to get away from canned foods, which often have high counts of sodium in them. <br/>Being able to put them in the crockpot is going to save a lot of time for me as well: no constant watching during the whole process of cooking. Going to try this today!!
AWESOME! I've been looking for a way to cook beans in the slow cooker. Don't know why I didn't look here sooner, duh.
Thank you. Great idea to add some simple ingredients like pork fat, onion.
Very easy way to cook beans! I made a pound of black beans this way and it yielded the equivalent of about 5-6 cans of black beans - for less than $1! I'm currently making a pot of cranberry beans for good old Southern brown beans. I just tossed the soaked beans into the crock with some salt and pork fat (sorry, it's tradition! ;)) and I'm certain these will make a delicious snowy-day dinner!
This worked well. I froze half of them and made refried beans with the other half. I want to try this with black beans and chickpeas also.
Wow what a great way to prepare beans! I cheated and added about 1/4 cup chopped onion and 3 strips of bacon , both sauted for a few minutes before adding to the beans. Delish. Thanks for the keeper!! Made for Phase 1, TYM photo tag!
