Bend The Knee To This Bean And Sausage Soup

1 pkg Hormel kielbasa, smoked or polish sausage (if you want a healthier version, its fine to use turkey sausage-i do!)
1 medium onion, quartered and sliced thin
3 cans Bush’s beans- any kind will do…a mix is even better (i like black eyed peas, small butter beans and either pinto or northern beans)
1 Tbsp brown or spicy mustard
1/2 to 1 Tbsp Heinz cider vinegar (to-taste to give it a little tang)
Montreal steak seasoning…or salt,pepper and a little garlic powder

slice sausage links in half lengthwise then cut into 1/2 inch chunks
slice onion as indicated in ingredient list
spray either crockpot or medium to large saucepan or soup pot with cooking spray; add sausage and onion
pour in the beans, liquid included; add vinegar and mustard- stir to combine (if this is too sour, you can add a tiny bit of sugar to take the edge off); stir in Montreal or other seasoning
add just a bit of water to make more ‘stew’ like but not like a brothy soup- just enough to separate the ingredients a little bit- DO NOT cover the mixture with water
turn crockpot on (low if you’ll be gone all day, high if you need it in a couple hours) or cook on stove-once it gets to a boiling point, turn heat down and let simmer until flavors blend…re-season to taste
** if you prefer a thicker stock once its done cooking, add a bit of cornstarch/water or use Wondra/gravy flour to thicken….Enjoy!
