Nothing else can satisfy a hungry family quite like a pot of caramelized onions, garlic, smoked pork & hearty black beans. Topped off with sour cream, chopped onions & hot sauce, it's an endless bowl of flavor.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Pound Dried Black Beans

  • 1 Large Oso Sweet Onion (Chopped)

  • 1/2 Cup Garlic (Chopped)

  • 1/2 Cup Tomatoes (Chopped)

  • To Cover Water or Chicken Stock

  • 1/2 Cup Pound Smoked Ham Hock (or Similar)

  • 3 Tbsp. Oregano

  • 1/4 Cup Sherry

  • 1 Tbsp. Vinegar

  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil

  • To Taste Salt and Pepper

  • 3 Bay Leaves

PREPARATION

Rinse the beans and combine all ingredients and add into a crock pot or a large heavy-bottomed pot, bring to a boil and then the lowest possible setting (simmer) for 8 hours or overnight. Quick Recipe: Use 2 (32) oz. sized cans of cooked black beans instead of dried black beans simmer for 45 minutes. It's Oh So Hearty! Puree 1 cup beans for a thicker meal and serve with fresh chopped raw Oso Sweet onions. A little hot sauce won't hurt either! Sour cream and salsa are nice as well!
