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.
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). :)
Did not care for this. Thought it seriously lacked in flavor. I am a huge fan of Cuban food and this did not taste like those black beans found in Cuban restaurants.
Good bean recipe. I made it as described except with Yuengling and doubled everything and my family liked it. If making it for myself I would have added some jalapenos or anchos.
Very good! I found that using a little less beer makes it less soupy and more of a side dish. I also added cumin, some cayenne, and red pepper flakes to give it a little more flavor.
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.
Good stuff. I used Sam Addams a pretty heavy beer and it turned out great!!
I loved this recipe. I'd never added beer to beans before and it was quite tasty.
