How to make it
- Place beans in a deep sauce pan with 4 cups of water. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for at least 1 hour. (or soak over night)
- Sauté ground beef over medium-high heat, with minced garlic, till browned. Trying not to break up the meat in to overly small pieces. You want to maintain nice meaty chunks for the soup.
- Transfer beans and liquid into a crockpot. Add browned beef to crockpot. Then add the boiling hot broth, carrots, celery, onion, and tomatoes with juice, bay leaf, thyme, and peppercorns. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours, or until the beans are done.
- Stir in parsley, salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaf and peppercorns (if desired). Heat for 15 more minutes and serve.
