Double-Batch Crockpot Beef and Beans

Submitted by: 1TRULYBLESSED

Introduction

I got this versatile, super-easy recipe from the November 1998 issue of Woman's Day magazine, modifying it to reduce the sodium (the nutrition info uses beans with salt added, but rinsing & draining the beans reduces the actual sodium content). Use half the batch for a meal tonight, and the other half for a different meal later -- it freezes beautifully!
