2 lbs Black beans
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 large onion
- 1 green pepper
- 6 garlic cloves
- 1 tsp. cumin
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1/2 cup of olive oil
- 3 srtips of bacon
- 2 0r 3 pork chops
The night before cooking, place beans in a bowl and cover with water and the baking soda. Cover at least an inch as the beans will swell. Cover and let set all night.
The next morning, wash well and rinse thoroughly! Cover again with water. Continue to add water so that they remain covered as they cook. DO NOT SALT! Place the pork chops, cut into cubes in with the beans.
Once the beans are soft, add salt.
In a frying pan, add the olive oil and brown the bacon, chopped onion, green pepper, and chopped garlic. Cook until well browned, almost burnt. Add to the beans along with the cumin.
Place on a low fire and let cook until thickened. About 10 minutes before serving, add the cilantro.
If too soupy, place a few cups of the beans in your blender and then return the blended beans to the bean pot. Cook a few more minutes.Porfa! Nada de azucar!!!
