One of the questions we receive the most is "can I cook 15 BEAN SOUP® beans in a crock pot or slow cooker"? The answer is: ABSOLUTELY! Try this easy to follow recipe and you will have a pot full of 15 Bean Soup waiting for you after a day of activities. See cooking tips below the recipe for more info.
This is my family's "goto" recipe for ham soup. We absolutely love it! And the fact it is now adopted to the crock pot, puts it over the top!!
This was the first time I've ever made this soup. I soaked the beans overnight. I had a pork tenderloin that was overcooked (dry), so I decided to cut it up and put in the Crock Pot with all of the other listed ingredients. After it cooked all day on low, I shredded the meat with a fork and it was very tender. It had a packet of Cajun seasoning but it still needed salt and pepper. It was very good though. We ate it with cornbread.
I cooked this for the first time using the slow cooker method, (ingredient list from bag). I used ground turkey over chicken and ground Italian sausage. I was not sure what to expect, but this has amazing flavors. Will definitely make it again. Although next time, I will wait until getting home from work to add carrots, celery and onion; they were mush. =( Also, I soaked the beans overnight.
been making this for myself and friends for over 20 years. this time i halved the recipe (i still used a pound of turkey smoked sausage) and it took about 6 hours in my slow cooker on medium. i added a little sriracha sauce for a garlicky kick and it was great.
I make it with two extra cups of broth and fresh ground pepper, it is so good. Next time I won't cook it longer than the recipe says, it is a little too mushy.
