Topic tags/keywords: recipe ranch style beans food good


I have developed a nice & simple recipe for Ranch Style Beans...

I thought I’d share it with you.

I hope you try it… and like it…

We never buy beans in a can anymore… It’s a ton cheaper to cook them yourself…

One of my favorite lunches is a small bowl of beans & crackers…

... and, of course, they good with steak too…!

Merry Christmas and

Happy New Year!

I’ve got a bag of dried beans in the cupboard, and I’ve been putting it off, putting them in a bowl of water to soak overnite. Now I’m going to try your recipe, Joe! I read your personal story too. Fascinating!

If your beans are super OLD, they may never soften… I had some old beans… they never softened after 6 hours of boiling!!

They are cheap enough… I get 10 lbs. of Pinto beans for $8.99 and on Sale for $6.99 … That’s $.90 or $.70 per POT!

They cook so much easier…

I would suggest getting FRESH beans and avoid the possible grief…

Loves me some red beans and rice. Pretty similar to yours, just cook them a looong time until they are tender with a few simple spices and some carrots and celery.
Off to find the crock pot… :)
