rootbeerbeans

1 lb Polska Kielbasa (All I had at time, was tasty. Your Choice)
1-1.5T Organic Coldpressed COCONUT OIL
1 nice size Onion

1 lb Dried Light Red Kidney Beans
5-6c Water *SEE NOTES
4 Beef Broth Cubes, crushed
2c A&W Root Beer *SEE NOTES
1 15oz. can plain Tomatoes, drained
1 Red Pepper (Optional, I skipped- Forgot…)
1tsp packed Brown Sugar
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/2tsp Chili Powder
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Mustard powder
1/4tsp Ginger Powder
1/4tsp + 1/8tsp McCormick Garam Masala (DON’T SKIP)
1/4tsp Paprika

Add Water, Beef Cubes, Root Beer, Tomatoes, Seasons to Crock Pot. Stir, lightly, add in Dried Beans.
In skillet, Saute Onions and Kielbasa in COCONUT OIL (Has to be Coconut Oil! It adds to this dish!). Add Kielbasa, Onions, and all it’s Juices, to the Crock Pot. Cook on High, first 2 hour. Then Low for 6, or so, hours. LIGHT Stir, occasionally.

*NOTES: I did 6c Water, but, came out liquidy- Slightly Soupy. Next time, I will alter Liquid or Beans. House still loved it, especially the next day! So, will post now, edit later. Was thinking of either: Adding more Dried Beans … or … Changing Liquids, using 5c Water + 2c Root Beer (Keep it 4 Broth Cubes) … or … 5.5c Water and 1.5c Root Beer (Keep it 4 Broth Cubes) … We’ll see…
Leftovers? Line Large Bell Pepper (Ready for stuffing) with 2-4 slices Bacon. Add in Beans. Top with Cheese. Bake.
