I have had this recipe for years. I think it originally came from Capper's Weekly. It is a different bean soup as it is beef instead of ham or bacon. If you plan ahead, it is a quick, hearty meal for a cold fall or winter day. I like to make it on the weekend to take for lunch during the week. I have included directions for crockpot and pressure pan cooking. I usually use the pressure pan. I did not specify a cooking time as that will vary depending on which method you choose. It really is quick to prepare. My photo.
