Braised Brisket with Beans and Ancho Chile

This recipe grossly underestimates the amount of time it takes to prepare it. Following the directions exactly, (I put dried beans straight into the pot for 1 hour) the beans were nowhere near done and I had to put it on the stovetop to cook way longer. It should have you presoak the beans at least. The supposed 25 min. "active" time is really more like 1-1 1/2 hours. I mean, how are you supposed to chop everything (15 min.), brown meat (15 min.), cook vegetables and reduce wine (30 min.) in 25 min. exactly???
