“On a cold day a pot of Pintos will hit the spot. Add a cake of Grandpas Cornbread and some chopped onions and you have a meal! The prep and cooking times will vary depending on which methods you use.”

Directions

  1. First look through beans and remove any debris sometimes found in them. Then rinse well. Put in a pot and cover with water and soak overnight-Or you can do a quick soak by bringing them to a boil and immediately turning off and let sit for 2 hours.
  2. Rinse side meat and slice into chunks.
  3. Now there are two ways to go from here- You can cook them on stove top or in a crock pot- I prefer the crock pot because they have a better flavor.
  4. Stove Top Method - Pour water off beans after soaking and add fresh water - enough to cover them completely. Add side meat, salt, and pepper.
  5. Bring to boil and then lower heat to simmer for app 2-3 hours stirring occasionally -Until the beans are as soft as you want them.
  6. Crock Pot Method- Pour water off beans after soaking and add beans to crock pot. Cover with fresh water and add salt, pepper and side meat. Cook on high about 1 hour then lower to low and cook about 6 hours - until beans are as soft as you want them.
  7. Serve with cornbread and chopped onions-MMMM MMMM Good!
