BEANS
« on: November 11, 2014, 11:34:35 AM »
so were gonna call these beans "ROUND UP BEANS"

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 package of Earl Campbell's smoked beef sausage
1LB of ground beef
1LB of ground country pork
8-10 slices of some really thick cut bacon
1 really large onion
fresh jalapenos halved and sliced (to your taste)
2x32oz cans of bushes baked beans (original style)
2x32oz cans of bushes chili beans (hot flavor)
seasoning (whatever you would like to add)

note: this will make more than what will fit into a really big crock pot, so you may have to mix all together in a large container and fill from there.  (I had to mix all the ingredients in a large pot, and then fill 2 crock pots with the mixture) 

DIRECTIONS:
1. brown beef and pork sausage, drain grease and add to the pot

2. slice, chop, cube, (whatever your taste buds are calling for) the smoked sausage, onion and jalapeno's, then add to the pot

3. cube and fry the bacon (I did the bacon first and then did the beef and pork in the bacon grease)

4. add all 4 cans of beans to the pot.

5. mix well and let simmer for at least 3 hours (I let mine go for 6  hours).

I have found a recipe for some truly homemade beans.  I did a little grocery shopping this afternoon and tracey has the beans soaking on the stove right now and will start this tomorrow.  I will make sure she takes lots of pics and ill get them as well as the recipe posted.

that's a negative ghost rider, these are great northern beans and/or navy beans.  I really try not to cook with pinto beans.

but the sad thing is is that not much of what tracey and I make is considered healthy.................?  so to me that would translate into too many cry baby boo hoo's would complain.

on that note, check out the homemade mayonnaise I made.

so the first try on the beans did not turn out. 

try number 2 is going to consist of canned beans and not the dry ones.  the dry ones did not soften.

lets be honest, 99%of the things we cook come from somebody's recipe.  tracey and I just have a knack of tweaking it.....?

so here is the end result of the 2nd attempt at making homemade beans.

here is the recipe

Ingredients:

? Water
? 2 tablespoons kosher salt
? 1 pound small dried beans, such as great northern, navy, or pinto beans, picked over and rinsed
? 8 ounces sliced bacon, cut into 1/2-inch strips
? 1 1/2 cups finely minced yellow onion (about 1 large onion)
? 2 tablespoons finely diced seeded jalape?o (about 1 medium pepper)
? 1/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper
? 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 3 medium cloves)
? 2 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth
? 1 1/2 cups ketchup
? 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
? 1/3 cup honey
? 1/4 cup molasses
? 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
? 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
? 1 tablespoon barbecue rub
? 1 tablespoon hot sauce





directions:

1. In a large container, whisk together 2 quarts water and salt until salt has dissolved. Add beans, cover, and let stand overnight at room temperature. Drain and rinse beans. note: because the beans did not soften on the first attempt, we went with 5 cans of great northern beans


2. Place a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until fat has rendered and bacon has crisped, 7-10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving as much fat in dutch oven as possible.



3. Add onion to dutch oven and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion softens and begins to brown around the edges, about 7 minutes. Stir in green pepper, jalape?o, and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in 3 cups of water, chicken stock, reserved bacon, and beans. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 300?F while beans are simmering.







4. Stir in ketchup, brown sugar, honey, molasses, mustard, vinegar, barbecue rub, and hot sauce. Cover and transfer to oven. Cook beans for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and cook until beans are tender throughout and sauce has thickened, about 1 hour longer. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Season with salt. Serve immediately; alternatively, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or freeze. Reheat before serving.









these beans were darn good, they will be made again...... ;D

One thing I've found when using dry beans in recipes is they need a few days to soften.
We put dry beans in chili after about 30-36 hours of soaking.
Then after a day or two on simmer they do finally soften up.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.
