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.
NO SALT OR SEASONING IS ADDED TO THE WATER YET!
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.
