Cuban Black Beans



  1. Cover the beans with cold water and soak them for 8-12 hours. Discard the water. Then combine all ingredients in a large stock- pot. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the mixture boils, reduce the heat and allow beans to simmer for 1 ½ - 2 hours with cover slightly ajar. (The age of dried beans affects their cooking time. Older beans take longer; fresh beans cook faster.)
