Recipe Ingredients for Stewed black beans

1 pound black beans
1 quart water
6 garlic cloves
1 red pepper, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped finely
1/2 tspn salt
1/2 tspn black pepper
1 tspn olive oil

Recipe Directions for Stewed black beans

  1. Begin by quick soaking one pound of dried black beans in water covering the beans by two inches.

  2. After you pour the water over the beans, add three peeled cloves of garlic and one bay leaf to the pot as well.

  3. After the beans have soaked for two hours, test a bean to see if it's tender (they won't be finished yet).

  4. If you can bite into a bean, add the salt, ground pepper and olive oil.

  5. Turn the burner onto medium and bring the beans to a boil. Turn the temperature down to simmer.

  6. Meanwhile, sautee the yellow onion and red pepper until the onions are carmelized and the peppers are soft. Add this mixture to the beans.

  7. Continue to simmer the pot of beans until a tested bean is soft, adding water as necessary.
