Recipe Ingredients for Cuban Black Beans - Low Salt

2 lb dried black beans
1 green bell pepper, chopped
10 cups water
1/2 cup olive oil
3 small onion, minced
2 tablespoon garlic
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoon bay leaf
8 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Recipe Directions for Cuban Black Beans - Low Salt

  1. Wash beans.

  2. In a large pot, soak the beans with the first chopped bell pepper in water until swollen. Overnight?.

  3. 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.

  4. Cook until soft about 45 minutes.

  5. Heat oil in a medium pan. Add onion, second bell pepper and garlic and cook until soft.

  6. Add 1 cup of cooked beans and mash them well. Add mixture to bean pot.

  7. Add dry seasonings to the pot.

  8. Cover and boil 1 hour.

  9. Add vinegar and wine.

  10. Cover and simmer 1 hour.

  11. If broth is too watery, uncover and cook until it thickens.
