All-day beans

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Dried pinto beans
6 cups Water
1 medium Onion -- thinly sliced
6 Beef bouillon cubes -- or
2 teaspoons Dried crushed red chili
2 teaspoons Garlic -- or to taste
2 ounces Lean salt pork -- optional

Wash beans and discard any blemished beans. In a heavy 3 to 4 quart saucepan or slow cooker, bring water to a boil. Drop in beans and cook briskly for 2 minutes. Turn off heat, cover and let soak 1 hour. Add onion, garlic, crushed chilies, bouillon, pork and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to its lowest setting and simmer tightly covered for 5½ hours or until tender. Add water as necessary. Salt can be added at the end if desired.

Goes good with hamburgers or barbecue. Also can be served in bowls with a mound of salsa on top.
