A new twist for Baked Beans. - Mon, 03/26/12 1:38 PM
0
Maybe someone else has done this before, but yesterday, I had a corned beef that was too tough for my liking, to serve as a platter or sandwich. What to do with it? I put in the Cuisanart, put the chopped corned beef in with my Baked Beans, let me tell you, great addition, too expensive to do every time, but man oh man, great added flavor. You should try it next time you got leftover corned beef

Corned beef too tough?  How is that possible?  I made one the other night and in the process of getting it out of the pot, it broke in half.  We ate quite a lot and MH assures me that he will turn the leftovers into corned beef hash.

I do a whole Brisket, smoked 16 hours, either this one got pulled early or it came from a tough old Steer. Usually melt in your mouth this one didn't so, into the BB.

They shouldn't even let you Southern boys call them Baked beans. Everyone knows the real baked beans come from New England....Once you have had a Crock of Boston Baked beans there is no going back, and thats no Crock.................

I'd probably enjoy that. We make bbq beans with hot sausage, onions and green peppers, and bbq sauce. Sometimes diced jalapeno also. Brown the sausage with the onion and peppers,  add some regular plain baked beans (we used either Grandma Browns or Bush's) and your favorite bbq sauce and simmer on the stove for a while. Deee-licious!

If you smoked it, wouldn't that make it pastrami?

Indeed if the seasonings we're Pastrami, smoke desn't make brisket Pastrami, the seasonings make the differnce' smoke makes brisket , beef brisket, with totally different rub. Corned Beef, has to be " corned", brined, then seasoned as such.The cooking method enhances the flavore of all 3!

I'll stick with Bushie's beans.  (Named after our beloved Roadfooder, Mark Rodebush).  They are delicious.

This Southern New England guy happens to have a bean pot, and a stone-lined hole in the ground out back.

Michael, I need to make sure my tow girls get to try real Boston Baked beans when we get to Boston. I still remember the crock of bean on the table at picnics. Chewy is  a Southern Boy, he doesn't know beans about beans.
 
lleeChef, Sworn to secrecy in my neck of the woods means, it will cost you........I saw your New England recipe, I guess the crock pot method replaces the old Crock method.............In your recipe did you start with Navy beans ?????????

Not navy beans. For the rest I guess it'll have to wait till Bushie decides to part with the secret. I will say that when lleechef makes them they're great.

WOW Michael, so much for the Jerry's Apizza blood brother pack we had. Looks like your getting all Yale on me....................The navy beans I was talking about were for the New England Baked beans. I figure Bushies uses Pinto, you know how Southern folk are.......

Here is the recipe as Bushie posted it on here a few years ago.
 
"The "right way" to me is to keep it simple. I cook pintos using only fresh-ground black pepper and a big piece of salt pork (or ham bone if we've recently had a ham), then salt to taste after they've cooked awhile. I cook them for many hours, first covered, then after a few hours I take the lid off. This allows the juice to thicken a little. I don't want them "sludgey", but I don't want the juice thin, either. I add enough liquid (usually just water, but chicken broth doesn't hurt) along the way to keep them from getting gloppy.

The only concession I'll make is that sometimes I'll chop up some fresh (not pickled) jalapenos and cook those in there."

John, everything is better smoked IMHO, indeed the flavor and tenderness when smoked long enough cannot be matched. At least 90% of the people who have it here mention it's the best Corned Beef they have ever had.

C'mon, my wife says it'll have to wait for Bushie and you expect me to cross her?
 
By the way, while Bushie does live in Central Texas he's from Missouri. No Southern folk, he.

Well, Greymo let the beans out of the bag.  I was hoping Bushie would chime in.  But, yep, that's the recipe.  They are simple but really good.  Sometimes I add a little canned chopped tomato.

Hi Michael, "yah likes them like yah likes them" as long as they are good, anytime you can cook beans from scratch, that's a good thing.................The recipe I put in here is the one we make in our cafe, it's Mexican Rancho beans, my Mexican cooks serve them with all the Mexican meals. Chefbuba started using Peruvian beans, he said they are much better than pinto beans. I haven't tried them yet, they are on the list................

Your recipe sounded good.
 
Peruvian beans? Never heard of them. I'll look for them.Might be fun to try them.
 
Hmmm.Peruvian Bean:
maicoba bean = mayocoba bean = Peruvian bean = azufrado bean = Peruano bean = canaria bean = canario bean    Substitutes:  pinto bean

What are Bushie's beans ??????????


Ah, grasshopper, one does not give out the famous recipe for Bushie's Beans.  It must come from Mr. Rodebush himself.  Perhaps he will post it once again.  Pick up the white courtesy phone, Bushie!

 
Geez, what WON'T I do for a pretty woman?? 
 
In a former discussion about beans, I mentioned that I loved pinto beans, but only if they are cooked "the right way".  Lisa inquired as to what I meant, and this is my original reply.  Not really a recipe, but a way of cooking them:
 
"The "right way" to me is to keep it simple. I cook pintos using only fresh-ground black pepper and a big piece of salt pork (or ham bone if we've recently had a ham), then salt to taste after they've cooked awhile. I cook them for many hours, first covered, then after a few hours I take the lid off. This allows the juice to thicken a little. I don't want them "sludgey", but I don't want the juice thin, either. I add enough liquid (usually just water, but chicken broth doesn't hurt) along the way to keep them from getting gloppy.

Thank you Bushie for your famous pinto bean cooking method.  For those of you that like pinto beans, by all means, try this.  They are wonderful......simple.....but oh, so wonderful.  Looks like I'm headed to the store to get a bag of beans, soak them tonight and make Bushie's Beans tomorrow!
