Combine beans with cold water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour. Add onions, garlic, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Bring to a boil; simmer 1 hour or until beans are just tender. Add tomatoes and brown beef. Simmer 30 minutes longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 4 servings. To serve as soup instead of stew, add one to two cups beef broth.
