    That’s why I cook and let him do the dishes.

    “An hour?” ONE hour? Seriously, Big Daddy, what kind of a crock pot do you have?

    Just what I was wondering!

    The newer crock pots cook faster but not that fast! I have two, an older smaller one and a newer larger one and I have to always remember that the older one cooks slower. But there’s no reason to wait to wash the dishes, after you get everything in the crock pot you wash the dishes, then after the meal all you have to wash is a couple plates, silverware and the pot itself.

    Why not just eat right out of the crock pot, family style? Then just throw away the chop sticks!

    Or better yet, put the dishes and silverware in the dishwasher. The only thing left to wash is the crock pot.

    1 hour? come on, what’s for dinner? sardines and canned potatoes with canned beans?

    I’ve got a recipe book that tells me, for example, a recipe takes about 6 hours to cook in the crockpot. I’ve discovered with the crockpots I have, it takes about less than 2 hours of that time frame. Oh just a hint for those who use hamburger in their crockpot recipes, after browning and draining it, I rinse the meat in hot water to take most of the grease off it before putting it in the crockpot. It lessens the greasy taste considerably. I also rinse the cut up potatoes before boiling them to reduce the amount of “scum”, for lack of a better word, that accumulates when they are boiled.

    Your idea to rinse the browned ground beef makes sense to me. Got to use something that won’t let the tiny pieces of meat do down the drain with the grease.
    To “Burp” the pinto beans, rinse them off before putting them in the pot, about 1/4 to 1/3 dried beans to water. Put them on high for an hour.
    Pour out all the water, rinse the beans, and fill the crock pot back up with water, and put them on high temperature for another hour.
    Turn it down to low, and let them cook over night with some salt stirred in.
    Trying to salt them, for the first time, after they’ve been cooked does not work!
    About 4 hours before serving, take a large “sacrificial” potato, cut it long-ways into 3 or 4 peices and put it in the beans, distribute the peices thru the pot. Take all pieces of the potato out and throw it away before serving.
    The gas that potatoes absorb may kill who eats it!
    The time for this recipe is, of course, for an older crock pot, however, beans really should be soft enough to easily mash with a fork when they are eaten.
    I like to put some real bacon bits in there during the overnight cook and some pickled pepper sauce on them when I eat them, mashed up with some corn bread, tomatoes on the side. My husband adds fresh sliced onion and no vinegar.
