You can use dried beans, but you need to wash and soak in water+ 1 tsp baking soda over night. Next day, remove soaking water and transfer to deep pot and add boiling water to cover. Cook for about 1 hour over low heat or till almost done. Add beans with cooking water to cooked beef. Add ½ cup Tomato puree (or blended fresh tomatoes) + 1tsp sugar and let all cook together over low heat for about 15-20 minutes more. Proceed with same steps for End-Splash addition.
