How to Make Best Red Beans (Crock Pot)


  1. Rinse beans and double check for pebbles or dirt. Some companies miss a few and they are in the bag. Rinse them well.
  2. Place Pintos in a large crock pot. Cover with water upto an inch below the lid well on the pot.
  3. Add the Knorr cubes and boulion. (add optional ham hock now)
  4. Set Crock Pot for 10 hours on high (will be ready to eat in 8 hours but this gives you time to get home).
    Go to work or enjoy your day it will be done for a nice dinner side!
