    • 400g dry black beans, soaked overnight
    • 1L cold water, or as needed

    1. In a medium stockpot, combine soaked beans (see Note), water, onion, green pepper, garlic, bay leaves, salt, cumin and oregano. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Stir occasionally and add water as necessary so that the beans don't dry out or scorch.
    2. When beans are tender, stir in wine, vinegar and olive oil.

    Note:

    If you don't have time to soak the black beans overnight, use the quick-soak method: bring beans and water to the boil. Turn off heat and allow to stand for 1 hour before proceeding with recipe.
