crock pot korean-style black beans

It doesn’t get easier then this!  It honestly took me less than 2 minutes this morning to throw the ingredients into the crock pot, turn the switch on low and dinner was ready for us when we got home!  Not only is this a nutritious meal, but it is incredibly “budget friendly” weighing in at under $0.50 per serving!  You can’t argue that it’s expensive to eat healthy now!
