    These black beans were great! I couldn't stop eating them. I will definitely make them again.  -  28 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty. I cut the recipe in half and cooked for 40 mins in an electric pressure cooker. Beans were perfectly cooked. Next time I may use a bit less water.  -  11 Jun 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've made these several times since purchasing my electric pressure cooker, and finally have the liquid-bean ratio just where i like it . I brown the onion first, then combine 2 cups veg broth, 3 cups water and one bag of dried black beans, and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Cook for 40 minutes and the beans are tender. Salt to taste after they are cooked.  -  10 Sep 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
