  • Combine black beans, water, onion, garlic, salt, pork bone, jalapeno pepper, and bay leaf in a slow cooker.

  • Cover and cook on High, stirring at least once after 1 hour, until cooked down and beans are tender, 6 to 8 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Beans do not need to be pre-soaked.

You can use a country-style rib instead of a pork bone, if desired.

Final cooking time will depend on your slow cooker and desired thickness of the sauce. Adjust by changing the amount of water and/or cook uncovered for the last 1 to 2 hours.
