Cuban Style Black Beans and Rice

As requested:

Black Beans and Rice


1 Lb Black Beans (dry), cleaned
2 Ea Cloves
1 Ea Small Onion, halved
2 Ea Bay Leaves
4 Cl Garlic, peeled
½ Ea Green Bell Pepper
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Dry Oregano
2 Pkts Sazon
2 Tb Olive Oil
½ Ea Small Onion, minced
2 Cl Garlic, minced
½ Ea Green Bell Pepper, minced
3 Ea Scallions, minced
TT Salt and Pepper
6 C Cooked White Rice

Place the beans in a 4-quart saucepan and add cold water to cover the beans by three inches. Soak for at least three hours.

Stick the cloves into the onion and add them to the beans along with the bay leaves, garlic, green pepper, cumin, oregano and Sazon. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the onion, garlic, green pepper, scallion, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables begin to brown around the edges.

Remove the onion, cloves, bay leaves, garlic, and green pepper from the cooked beans. Stir the sautéed vegetables into the beans and return them to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, until the liquid reduces and the beans are soupy.

This could take around two hours depending on the amount of liquid used initially, the strength of the simmer and your definition of ‘soupy’.

Season with salt and pepper.

It's Mexican MSG, adds a great "something extra" and comes in boxes of little packets. Black beans and rice freezes well too.

Thanks Dawgluver. So I should look in the spice aisle or the ethnic foods aisle. If I can't find it should I sub something or just leave it out?

I'd leave it out, I suppose you could use Accent with some cilantro.

Goya Sazon is the brand I use. It has annatto in it as well.

What he said. Where I shop it's in the Goya section of ethnic foods. I use the version without annatto.
