Ingredients

  • 2 pounds black beans
  • 20 cups water
  • 1 cup plus 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves, mashed or chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 8 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, optional
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup dry red wine

Directions

Wash the beans and soak overnight in the water. When the beans swell, cook in the same water until soft, about 45 minutes. Heat 1 cup oil in a frying pan, add onions, garlic and green peppers. Add 1 cup of the beans to the pan and mash. Add this to the beans together with the salt, pepper, if using, oregano, bay leaves and sugar. Allow to boil for a 1 hour then add the wine and vinegar allowing to cook uncovered for a while. Add the 4 remaining tablespoons olive oil just before serving.
