Serves 6 I have done my best over the years to minimise faffing and washing up to be able to make beans from scratch on a worknight. The preparation begins the night before, leaving the beans to soak in the slow cooker itself. In the morning, you turn it on so they're cooked for when you get back home. As my mum would say the recipe has been 'englishified'... So it uses really easy to find (or just 'have') ingredients. Based on what you could find in the regions of the UK in the 80's and 90's! I do offer more authentic substitutions next to it, if you are feeling brave :) Serve with rice, and fried food for the ultimate comfort meal!
This is one of those meals that is even better the next day... And the day after... Infact the 'cooked many days in a row' effect is what I am trying to achieve a bit in step 7 with the mashed beans. It's perfect for meal prep too :)
