The dark molasses in this recipe give this dish a wonderful taste.


  • 1 lb. dried pinto beans
  • 6 c. water
  • 3 lbs. round roast
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ c. dark molasses
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. dry mustard
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Rinse beans under running water, place in a large kettle with water; bring to boiling; cover kettle; lower heat; cook 15 minutes; let stand 1 hours.
  2. Trim all excess fat from beef; brown meat on all sides in remaining fat in a large skillet.
  3. Place meat in the bottom of the slow cooker; add beans and liquid, onion, molasses, salt, ginger, mustard, pepper and bay leaf.
  4. Add more water, if needed to cover meat and beans; cover.
  5. Cook on high for 2 hours, stir beans, adding more liquid if needed to keep beans and meat covered.
  6. Turn heat control to low and cook for 8 hours, or until beans are very tender and liquid is absorbed. Taste and season with a spoonful of hot prepared mustard, if you wish.
  7. Remove meat to a carving board and cut into slices; spoon beans around beef on platter.
