I've always made dried beans with ham or bacon but I only had tenderloin so that's how I came up with this recipe. I sometimes add sliced onion to the pot when I add the beans. Please note that the cook time on 5 hours is on high. These can also be cooked on low for 8 hours, but the chops need to be started on high for 1 hour either way.
