Sofrito is the key to Cuban cooking! This recipe starts out right...Onion,garlic, sauteed in Olive oil is a must!No beer in Cuban beans-instead add cumin,1-2 bay leaves, salt(!!!), pepper, "bijol" if you can find it at your Latin grocer. All of these are to taste- Cuban style cooking (a pinch here or there- a lo cubano). :)
This is an excellent quick recipe for black bean soup. I omit the beer just b'cuz I don't like it. Also I'd saute 1/4 to 1/2 lb. chopped bacon in the pan first remove the bacon & saute the veggies in the drippings. This adds an authentic flavor to the recipe.
We thought these were really good. They were a bit bland when done cooking but once I added some salt they were perfect. I liked that they were simmered in beer which gave the beans a nice flavor. I cut back on the beer as suggested by another reviewer but I ended up adding in the full amount. I let them simmer over low heat uncovered and they thickened up nicely. When ready to serve I drizzled them with a bit of jalapeno olive oil for an extra kick. These beans would be really good with cumin chili powder or chipotle powder added or even cooked with some diced jalapeño. I will be making these again with some variations here and there.
This was very good...the flavor was GREAT!!!!! I didnt have the right kind of pepper so I used red pepper flakes and it was wonderful. Parts were a little dry but will surel make this recipe again. I will try not to cook it so long next time. I left it in the crockpot for 9 hours.
