If you like beans and rice, I'm pretty sure you'll like this. My secret is that I wash my beans and pick the bad ones out, then soak them overnight in the beef broth, worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke. The beans really soak up the flavor instead of just soaking up water. And, as always, I prefer to use Botan rice which is found in the asian section of your grocery store.
