    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.


    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.

    Too much liquid, too mushy veggies. If I made this again, I would cut the water and add the peppers and onion much later.  -  04 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
