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

    • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 tablespoon salt

    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.

    Had to throw this out because the beans were crunchy and not cooking. I followed the non-soak method but forgot to not add salt. I’ll be buying canned beans from now on, just not worth it trying to cook them.  -  29 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I'll make these again. I didn't find this recipe until after my black beans were completely cooked. I sauteed some onion and bell pepper, put in some garlic and cumin, and put all it plus a couple bay leaves in to cooked beans. As the rest of dinner was finished I put in a bit of red wine vinegar but didn't have any cooking wine. I also skipped the additional olive oil, since I sauteed the onion and pepper in it earlier. I look forward to following the recipe from the beginning next time.  -  24 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
