I made up this recipe this last 4th of July to go with Tri Tip and Onions. They were a hit, as people were getting seconds. This recipe takes time but requires very little attention. Beans are always a treat when having a crowd for dinner. These versatile beans would go very well with Grilled Sausages, BBQ Ribs, Steaks, any Pork Meat, or even Simple Roasted Chicken. This recipe yields enough for about 10 - 12 servings. Remember beans freeze well, if you think this makes too much for you. If you are going to take the time to make them, make a lot, I always say.
