    Default Slow Cooked Ranch-Style Brisket And Beans Redo

    A few weeks ago I had the beans that wouldn't cook after 12 hours of
    simmering, but the recipe tasted good. So, I wanted to try it again using
    the suggestions from our discussions. I knew I wanted to use the same beans
    to make sure it wasn't them just the cooking method. I knew I didn't want
    to cook the beans with any vinegar or sugars. I put the washed beans
    unsoaked into my crockpot with 6 cups of water. I cooked them on high.
    After 5 hours I made a stop home between appointments. After 5 hours they
    were perfectly done. Could have eaten them right then and there. I then
    drained the beans and returned them to the crockpot with everything else in
    the recipe EXCEPT the 2 cups of hot water. I cooked it on high again for 4
    hours. When I returned home everything was done and smelled so good. It
    was a little watery, so I put the whole thing in a pot on the stove to
    simmer. It simmered while I got garlic bread and a salad made. By then it
    was the perfect consistency.

    Slow Cooked Ranch-Style Brisket And Beans

    1 pound dried pinto beans
    2 cups hot water
    1 large onion chopped
    1-1/2 cups ketchup
    3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon prepared mustard
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
    1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
    3 pounds beef brisket -- boned, trimmed of fat

    ---------------------------------
    In a 4 or 5-quart electric slow cooker, combine the pinto beans, water, and
    onion. In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce,
    mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, seasoned salt, and liquid smoke. Stir half of
    the ketchup mixture into the beans in the slow cooker. Place the brisket on
    top of the beans; cut to fit into the pot if necessary. Spread the remaining
    ketchup mixture over the top of the brisket Cover and cook on the low heat
    setting 9 to 10 hours, stirring once or twice, if possible, until the beans
    and beef are tender. Skim off any excess fat from the top. To serve, slice
    the meat across the grain and serve with the beans

    Yield: 6 servings

    Looks good! I love pinto beans all by themselves, so I'll try this
    sometime (not crockpot style though). Thanks for the recipe.

    Two questions
    1. Is *seasoned* salt absolutely necessary?
    2. Could you have lived without the smoke flavoring? I can picture
    it with the brisket, but am having a hard time imagining it with pinto
    beans.

    If you don't want "smoke flavoring" how abou a little chipotle chili
    in adobo sauce? That would give you a nice little whisper of smoke
    naturally.

    It was VERY good with pinto beans. I used regular salt when I cooked the
    beans and didn't add any more salt when I added the other ingredients. I
    didn't had liquid smoke either time I made it as it doesn't agree with me.
    It was still great.

    I actually love plain old smoke flavoring from the bottle and can't
    stand chipotle in adobo sauce. To me, chipotle is overpoweringly
    smoky.

    I was just wondering about the smoke & beans.

    Thanks! OK, I'll do what you did. I don't like "seasoned" salt and
    thought smoke might taste weird with the beans.
