  • Recipe: Beans - Ranch Style

    We ate canned ranch style beans from stores for years...
    Then one day I wondered... "Can I cook beans that taste like that?"
    I started playing around and got some big help from a cookbook,
    "The Pioneer Woman Cooks", a wonderful book.
    (see my website store for a link to buy it... Down the Page on Right side)
    This is the result of my experimenting with the recipe...
    I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

    Rinse one lb. of Pinto beansin a 5 Qt. pot discarding the water.
    Add Water to about 1-1/2 inches to 2 inches abovethe Beans.
    Turn to HIGH heat until it comes to a good BOIL....
    Turn DOWN to LOW placing a lid on the pot.
    Start a Timer for 1-1/2 hours. No need to stir during this time.

    Prepare the dry ingredients in a small dish:
    1-1/2 tsp... Salt
    1 tsp... Black Pepper
    1 tsp... Garlic, granulated
    1 tsp (heaping)... Oregano
    1 tsp (heaping)... Cilantro

    Get the following at hand:
    Honey ... we will need 1 Tbsp (overflowing)
    Beef Bouillon cube or 1-1/2 tsp Beef Bouillon concentrate.

    At the end of boiling for 1-1/2 hours:
    Add dry ingredients
    Pour in the Honey
    Add the Beef bouillon

    Turn heat to HIGH.

    Stir well to get the leaf flakes of Oregano & Cilantro mixed and OFF the sides of the pot..
    When it comes back to a good boil, turn heat down to LOW.

    Stir bottom every 20 minutes.
    Continue until water has reduced to a thickness you like...
    It WILL get thicker as it cools down.
    (another 1 hour to 1-1/2 hour.)
    Place pot on a cool burner to let cool down.
