How to make it

  • For sofrito
  • Heat 1/2 cup canola oil on medium high. Add onion, garlic, green pepper, oregano, cumin and sautee for 5 minutes or until onion has softened.
  • *******************
  • In medium size sauce pan, heat beans on medium to high heat, adding water, bay leaf, salt and sugar. Cook sofrito. Add sofrito and slowly mix in. Add olive oil, vinegar and stir well. Keep bean on medium high for 20 minutes. Lower heat and let simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve on top of rice. It too salty for your taste, drop a peeled onion to soak up excess salt. If too vinegary, do the same thing. Let sit for another 10 minutes on medium. Serve over white rice. If you'd like to have it as as soup, add a bit more water or dry white cooking wine.

    Instead of doing all that work try the black beans and sofrito from a place we found on the web at:

    The sofrito is really good stuff. We’ve been using it to make black beans of course and chicken and rice (Arroz con Pollo), red beans and ham (Frijoles Colorados), Paella, Picadillo (Cuban sloppy joes), braised short ribs in wine, tamal en cazuela (Cuban Polenta with Pork) and others.

    This sounds great! I just tried Cuban food about a month ago and absolutely loved the beans and rice. What kind of beans would you recommend using?
