Bean Pot Soup

This is Grandma Andrus' recipe, and it's still a classic at my house.

2 cups pinto beans
1 pound ground beef
1 28-ounce can tomatoes
1/3 cup rice
onion, diced
carrots, sliced
celery, chopped
dried parsley
bay leaves
salt and pepper
3-4 cups water
beef soup base or bullion cubes

Bring pinto beans to a boil.  Remove from heat and let stand one hour.  Pressure cook beans 18 minutes or 16 minutes when using kidney beans with less water.  Brown ground beef and drain.  Add beans and all remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil then simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve with ketchup if desired.
