And thanks for the info about soaking for the non-pressure cooker version.

I'm thinking that navy beans might work, too. nom nom nom




Yes, that recipe sounds very good, I may give a go sometime (though I may use chicken instead of bacon). Do remember NOT to add any salt, or any salty ingredients, to the beans until they have softened, because once salt has been added they may never get soft.

However when I make this recipe I'll probably use CANNED beans to make the whole process much shorter...




here's a little anecdote, too...I notice that beans cooked in a pressure cooker and eaten the same day are not conducive to...ahem, gas. However, if they are refrigerated and then reheated and consumed the next day, they are.

Re: Beef stew recipe

I read something similar in a recipe for red beans and rice. After soaking the beans overnight, pour off the water and use fresh.

It definitely cuts down on the, ummm, side effects, but the color isn't quite as rich. I suppose it depends on whether you're more attuned to your eyes or your nose. Smiley Happy

Re: Beef stew recipe

With canned beans, my wife and I usually drain the can then rinse with fresh water and drain again before putting the beans into the soup.
