I'm a Beef & Beans type person and this sure fills the bill. For once I followed the recipe, well almost.I couldn't resist adding another Onion and a Seeded, vained, finely minced & Sauted Jalapeno. This freezes and reheats with no loss of character.

I've made this twice, and have been very happy with the results. It's so easy, and my family likes it even though they don't usually care for beans. I added close to 1 1/2 c. barbeque sauce last time and it was great--I'd say different brands will affect the taste differently and you should add a bit at a time until you get the taste you like. This last time I also roasted the ribs separately and took the meat off the bone before adding to the beans at the beginning of their cooking time--I didn't like how greasy they were when the fat from the ribs cooked into the beans. Otherwise great comfort food!

This is easy and delicious - the meat was soooo tender and I just used some beef stew meat I had in the freezer. We loved the addition of the BBQ sauce at the end of cooking. I used cheap-old Open Pit and it worked great. You could use your own home made if you wanted to. I cooked this on low for about 12 hours and then served with cornbread. Thanks, Mirj!

I was very disappointed with this. It tasted like beans with barbecure sauce. And I thought I bought pretty good BBQ sauce. The beans barely cooked in 11 hours - even with soaking over night and having brought them to a boil before I put them into the crock pot. I won't do this one again.

Made this today and the soup was DELICIOUS! I stirred in a little over than a cup of barbeque sauce and everyone just loved it! Thanks for posting!

This was the first time i ever made a soup from scratch. it was delicious. The whole house smelled so good as this was cooking. The meat was so tender and fell off the bones. i would cut the amount of beans in half next time as this is a VERY filling soup. I added some chili powder, paprika and cajun seasoning as it was cooking, and Jack Daniel's barbecue sauce (probably a whole cup - i tasted it after each 1/4 cup). It was big hit with my boyfriend and me. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

I used 1.5 lbs beef stew meat and let my family add the bbq sauce to their taste. So easy and very yummy!

Perfect way to use the bones from yesterday's prime rib--that didn't taste like a re-do of yesterday--but a perfect meal all on its own. I made a few changes based on what was in the house--by using lima beans (that I pre-cooked a bit because I forgot to soak the beans) and a bit less barbecue sauce (using up what was in the container in the refrig) and added a package (16 oz) of frozen carrots in the last hour or so of cooking--cooked it on high for 8 hours. Delicious with corn bread. Thanks for sharing this keeper!

What a tasty treat. Added carrots and celery,, for color and preference and canned navy beans. I cooked this dish in a small roaster at a low oven temp. Very good. Thanks for sharing this winner, Mirj!
