Testing Mode - Side Dishes: BEANS
Well thanks to the contributions of you folks in Q talk, especially Mark, Mike Greg Phil, Brian carl, Dave , etc.....(hey wait. I just realized we got a ****load of regular posters. You new guys, join in!!). I started testing side dishes for the big T day.

Well today, in a farking rain that got me soaked in under a minute, I did pineapple with some of your suggestions. did the brown sugar cinnamon type mixture, patted into the pineapple. Wife said "okay, this is what I want on the Tday table" I told her about the chili powder suggestion. She said, lets go, and thats on for tomorrow menu.

I didn't get to try David's Bush Beans recipe, and there is only one or two in the recipe section. So lets put out a call for the bean pot recipes on this thread.

Next week, I'll ask your advice on wings (but Josh, I don't want something thats gonna burn my ******* off. Remember, 23 people running for the terlet at one time is NOT a good thing.)

So fellas, you helped me with the pineapples, so now, bean me.

PS got a big ass cast iron pot from Al, so I'm making enough for all. 2 days, Tday, then another 15 or so on Friday.

Brian's Baked beans
2 cans Kroger Pork & Beans
2 tablespoons Yellow Mustard (Cheap ****)
1 Cup Brown Sugar Mix togethter throw in a baking dish with a few slabs of bacon, Bake at 350 for a hour.

With regards to 23 people running to the terlett seeems like at the bash that many where running to the toilet after the turds. Phil accused me of hanging onto the oven for balance. Hell I was just trying not to **** all over myself.

But back on topic, what size cans are you talking about? Those big a$$ 28oz cans or bigger, or like the 15oz. Just need to know if I am multiplying your recipe by X # of people.

Oldtimer 11-05-2003 07:35 AM

15 Ounce cans multiply accordingly.

I've got a great bean recipe that might work for you. I'll run it down but the main difference is you put browned sausage in it. Holly Moly it is good!


Mike(Mi) 11-05-2003 08:44 PM

I found this on the Web and have been thinking about trying it. I'm not sure who came up with this but it sounds pretty good and very different. I think you could substitute bacon if you wanted.


2 (16 oz) cans pork and beans
c. Heinz catsup
1 lb. Ground sausage
1 can apple pie filling
1 medium onion, chopped
green pepper
c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. Mustard (prepared)

Brown sausage, onion and green pepper. Mix in remaining ingredients. Bake at 325 for 1 hour. Serves 12.

Bill-Chicago 11-05-2003 08:47 PM

Thnks Mike. I hope to get a few on this thread, then transport to the recipe section.

ricky 11-06-2003 08:54 AM

Bill, ours is bout like Mikes minus the apple stuff & sausage, instead put a lb of bacon in it chopped up instead of just laying across the top......put some comfort in it too

Bill-Chicago 11-06-2003 09:14 AM

Thanks Ricky

Butt Kickin' Texas Pintos

I served this at the last super bowl party. By the fourth quarter, there was a green cloud hanging around the ceiling :oops:

1 pound pintos soaked overnight
1 onion
2 - ? jalapenos (I use 6 - 7)
4 cloves garlic
2 - 3 T of a good chili powder
1 T ground cumin
8 oz or however much you want diced ham or hamhock (I've used just about any meat I smoke).
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
6 oz beer

Add everything and cover with water, bring to a boil and simmer slow for 3 - 4 hours till the beans are soft. Add cilantro to garnish if you like that stuff.

Serve over rice :D

Bill-Chicago 11-08-2003 07:22 PM

You know Mark, my problem is that when I soak beans, they never soften up properly.

I'll soak them overnight, bring them to a boil, then rinse and soak overnight, and I still end up with crunchy beans.

Can anyone help me out here?

PS, I need to use bags, versus cans of beans, cuz of the sodioum. Can't use canned beans (if possible)

in2que 11-08-2003 09:53 PM

Bill, you only need to soak them once. Let them simmer the next day forever if that's what it takes. I even do them in a crockpot for 8 - 10 hours. These are pintos. If you are trying to make some kind os sweet Boston style bean and add sugar, that will toughen 'em up every time.

My recipe calls for bags. Or bulk. I never use canned anything! Except beer 8)

Go back to bed Brian

Bill, try this link. I've made these a few times and they are always good.

Good luck.
