I love beans. And I love Terence Hill's blue-eyed cowboy movies. In My Name is Nobody, he eats a mess of beans, very sloppily, and with huge enjoyment. Later, Henry Fonda daintily picks at some. This is how I interpreted that mess. The mission? Depth of flavour. (Adding the vinegar and wine too early will slow down the beans' cooking time) - Marie Viljoen http://www.food52.com/recipes/2384_terence_hills_beans

Recipe Directions for Terence Hill's Beans (food52.com)

  1. Soak the beans in water overnight or bring to a boil and allow to rest in water until it is cold, discarding water in either event. Ask a question about this step.

  2. In the olive oil, gently saute the scallions, the garlic, and add the pancetta, cooking over medium heat until the fat runs a little.

  3. Add the tomato paste and stir until it has lightly caramelized.

  4. Add the drained beans, with enough chicken stock or water to cover them.

  5. Add the sugar, the peppers and the herbs, stir, and cover.

  6. Cook gently until the beans are fork-piercable tender, adding additional stock or water from time to time.

  7. When barely tender add vinegar and red wine.

  8. Cook, with lid removed, until the wine has been absorbed.Taste!

  9. Add freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste.

  10. Serve with crusty baguette and sweet butter. Not that Terence ever had either. Or the wine for that matter
