Dagars of Austin has been catering large parties
for over 40 years. The company started as a barbecue business but
branched out to serve just about anything anybody wants. These folks
still serve lots of barbecue, though, especially during an annual
June trail ride. This bean recipe serves 100, but you can cut it
down if you dont have a horde to feed.
10 pounds dry pinto beans
Rinse beans and soak overnight in cold water. Drain, rinse, and transfer to a very large pot, then cover with fresh water. Add salt, bell pepper, and jalapeño pepper, and boil for 2 hours.
Stir in remaining ingredients and turn heat down halfway. Simmer for 3 to 4 hours, stirring so beans dont stick and adding water if necessary.
(Note: Dagars says this recipe results in a
thick, rich gravy. If you want to dress the beans up a little or
make a meal out of them, add a 1-gallon can of crushed tomatoes
and 5 pounds of cooked ground hamburger meat.)
