Expert Tips

Why it Works: Don’t Know Beans? Although a can of beans is good in a pinch, cooked dried beans deliver the best flavor and texture. The goal when cooking dried beans is twofold: hydrating and cooking the starch. If your beans are old, the first part can be much harder than it sounds. The best practice is to cook beans in plain water. Acid and some minerals can actually strengthen the cell wall of the bean, preventing water from entering. Add tomato sauce and molasses near the end of cooking time. The high acid of the tomato and the minerals in molasses will guarantee your beans will never cook through.

Directions

  • 1 In 6-quart Dutch oven, heat beans and 10 cups water to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 2 hours; drain. (You are just precooking the beans; they don't have to be soft.)
  • 2 In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix beans and remaining ingredients.
  • 3 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beans are very tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
