It is so hard to find a good recipe that's using dried soybeans! This one worked well for me. Next time I may cook presoaked beans on the stove to reduce the time of cooking. It takes about 30 minutes of cooking on the stove vs. 4 hours in the crockpot. Also, I will probably use some red pepper as well to add some heat to the flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse beans in colander under cold water; pick over for damaged beans and small stones. Transfer to the slow cooker. Cover with cold water by 2 inches, soak overnight, and drain.
  2. Cover with the 4 cups water. Cover and cook on high until tender, about 4 hours. The beans need to be covered with liquid at all times to cook properly.
  3. Drain the cooked beans and return to the slow cooker. Add the onion, brown sugar, molasses, salt, mustard, and sesame oil; stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, until soybeans are flavorful but still moist and the onion is soft. Stir gently so as not to mash the beans and serve hot.
