JCV4–did you maybe use garlic and onion SALTS alternatively of powder? That would account for a lot of further salt. Recipe sounds good–I’m going to give it a try out.
I have in no way employed beef broth when I cooked my white beans. It gave them a fantastic flavor combined with the other seasonings and ham hocks. A fantastic comfort food recipe.

I actually liked the taste of this recipe and it manufactured a whole lot! My only damaging was that I considered it was extremely salty even however I utilized the lowered sodium chicken broth. Maybe that was from the ham hocks. Adding some diced potatoes would maybe counteract the saltiness. The recipe was really straightforward to make and the property smelled fantastic while it was cooking!
