I don't understand the poorer reviews - Halved recipe and used quick boil method (omitted the wine, vinegar & oil step at the end). I did wait 45 minutes before adding salt and mine were perfectly cooked in 2 hrs. I'm wondering if some of the people who complained about hard beans used older ones. In any event, I was looking for a simple straight forward method for cooking dried black beans and this was it. The seasonings are perfect if you're looking for simple side dish (which is what I wanted). Served with Mexican rice, tortillas, and Rick Bayless' grilled Mexican chicken. Absolutely delicious!
