Black beans are cooked with onion, green pepper and garlic, seasoned with bay leaves, salt, cumin and oregano. White wine and vinegar give these beans a nice little bite.
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)
Yes I made changes to it I didn't add any wine or vinegar and it still taste it great. - 02 Aug 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
