After adjusting the amount of soy sauce and making a few changes due to time and personal preference, this recipe is 4 and half stars easily. Like many other cooks suggested, I cut way back on the amount of soy sauce. First off I just threw everything in a crock pot to save time. I also added a couple of beef neck bones and sliced mushrooms to the mix. Instead of beef bullion I added what was left of some all-natural beef stock and topped off with water. The neck bones completed the 'broth' for me. I cut the soy sauce down to 1/4 cup and used a low sodium version. I also added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a few Tbsp. of olive oil (in place of margarine) and lots of fresh cracked black pepper. Cooked everyone on low all day and the beans came out great. I usually cut the sodium back in crock pot veggies b/c I always seem to have difficulty with getting the perfect amount esp. since you have to add liquid. Everyone loved them, and they made the whole house smell great. I imagine you could make these with a beefy onion soup mix as well in place of the bullion. Thanks for the recipe!
