Recipe, Rancho Gordo Yellow Eye Beans


Rancho Gordo’s Yellow Eye Bean was a bean I tried earlier and ruined….
Now that I am an old bean-cooking gal, it is time to revisit some of the beans
that I did early on because now I can coax their amazing flavors.

Yes, I am still a fanatic!

Yellow Eyes are creamy with a rusty center eye…
I did not soak, and cooked them as I’ve been cooking my beans  now, simply,
with 4-5 garlic cloves, a chopped raw onion, 4 de Arbol chilies, 1 chipotle chili
(I was seeing how much chili was too much and think I reached the point!),
2 bay leaves, a few dried sage leaves, and one pint of the
yummy Carman Ranch Beef Bone Broth (that is new to me and oh my was it good.)
Brought to a boil, 15 minutes, then began simmering.
This was just at the edge of too much heat for me,
but over rice or served with something else it is perfect!

Salt at the end, in the last 45 minutes!


Always organic or non-GMO, humanely raised. It matters!
