Where is the liquid?, Member pines15

I started making this recipe and when they were done soaking, they were dry, no liquid. Usually it tells you to drain after the soaking for an hour. Nothing to drain. Then it said to add the onion and salt and cook for 30 minutes. They were so dry they would have burned, so I added 3 cups of water. Kind of combining other recipes. They are cooking now and I will continue with the recipe as much as I can. Has anyone else tried these? I am hoping they will be good. I have to give the rating only 1 star because they would not have been good as written.
