Chuck-Wagon Bean Pot Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb bean (any variety), dry
1 ham hock or shank
1 large onion, chopped
6 cup water
1 tsp salt
7 oz green chili salsa (up to 10 oz, or use tomato sauce, ca

Recipe Preparation

Rinse the beans and remove any foreign matter. Mix all ingredients
in the cooking vessel.

IF USING A SLOW-COOKER: Cover, set temperature at low, and forget
for at least 10 hours. If you have only half a day, cook the mixture
5 or more hours on high.

IF USING A STOVE: Heat all ingredients to boiling with pot
uncovered. Turn down heat, cover, and simmer gently, adding enough
boiling water to keep beans well covered. Most bean varieties will be
done in 2 to 3 hours.

When beans are done, take out ham bone, cut off the meat and put it
back into the pot. Serve hot with corn bread or muffins. Green chili
salsa is a Mexican sauce made from green chili peppers, onions,
vinegar and other ingredients.


* A Hearty Bean Stew -- I got this recipe from "A Primer on Bean
Cookery" by the California Dry Bean Advisory Board and other
organizations. This savory stew, featuring ham and beans, borrows its
robust seasonings from the chuck wagon cooks of the old western
cattle ranges. The secret is long, slow cooking, and your electric
slow-cooker is ideal for the job. Just follow the directions that
come with your particular model. If you don't have one, slow-cook the
mixture on top of the stove in a heavy pot with a lid.

: Difficulty: Easy
: Time: 5 minutes preparation, many hours cooking.
: Precision: no need to measure.

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with splenda. Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will need to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for every dish, but it does a decent job most of the time.

* Use reduced carb chocolate for chocolate cookies and muffins. If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carb sugar-rich chocolate. Chop up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.

Flavonoid foods
(inlcudes onion, asparagus, soya and thyme)

The large family of compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these types of food are believed to have properties in helping to prevent cancer.
Nutritionalists looking into the properties of flavonoids think that they also have numerous health giving properties, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
Most are also good for weight loss, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
