Cuban Style Black Beans…

  1. 1 lb dried black beans

  2. 1 green bell pepper (chopped)

  3. 10 cups water

  4. 2/3 cup olive oil

  5. 1 large onion (minced)

  6. 1 green bell pepper (minced)

  7. 4 garlic cloves (pounded)

  8. 4 teaspoons salt

  9. 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  10. 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

  11. 1 teaspoon sugar

  12. 1 bay leaf

  13. 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  14. 2 tablespoons wine

  15. 2 tablespoons olive oil

  16. 2 limes for garnishing

  1. Wash beans. In a large pot, soak the beans with the first chopped bell pepper in water until swollen. Overnight?. **It doesn’t say so but I’d drain it at this point and add new water so the beans won’t be so musical if you know what I mean.**.

  2. Cook until soft about 45 minutes. Heat oil in a medium pan. Add onion, second bell pepper and garlic and cook until soft. Add 1 cup of cooked beans and mash them well. Add mixture to bean pot. Add dry seasonings to the pot. Cover and boil 1 hour.

  3. Add vinegar and wine.Cover and simmer 1 hour. If broth is too watery, uncover and cook until it thickens. Just before serving stir in the olive oil. Serve over rice and garnish with the juice of a lime.
