Do you have to soak dry beans before cooking in crock pot?
Put 2 cups dried beans into the slow cooker crock and soak overnight in cold water, enough to cover by several inches.
Turn cooker to HIGH and cook beans until they’re tender and cooked through, about 3-4 hours for soaked beans.
(You can also cook the soaked beans on low, which would take about twice as long.)
Can you overcook beans in a slow cooker?
It’s easy to overcook when the beans are on high. Different beans require different cooking times. I recommend cooking beans on low and after about 6-8 hours, start checking them every 30-60 minutes to see when they are soft. Once they are cooked, simply pour them into a strainer and wait for them to cool.

What happens if you don’t soak beans before cooking?
Real talk: You don’t have to soak your dried beans overnight. They’ll cook faster if you do, sure, and will be less likely to break apart when they cook, but as long as you have a couple of hours to work with, you’re golden.
