Top-ranked recipe named "Cuban-style Black Beans & Rice"
Cubans love black beans and rice. They flavor it with onion, garlic, lime and other spices. It simmers for several hours in a slow cooker to blend the flavors together and then usually served alongside Cuban-style rice.
"Tastes great but the beans never quite softened. For those of you in latitudes that have a hard time using dried beans in a crockpot, I'd add the step of over night soaking to the beginning of the recipe."
1. Rinse beans. In a large saucepan, combine beans and 4 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans.
2. Place beans in a 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. Add broth, onion, bay leaves, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cumin, lime peel, lime juice, salt and black pepper. Cover; cook on low heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. Remove bay leaves. Mash beans slightly.
3. Serve beans with hot cooked Cuban-style rice. If desired, garnish with cilantro and serve with jalapeno pepper slices and lime wedges.

mikhof02 2 weeks agoI wanted black beans and rice but didn't want to cook all day, so I substituted canned beans. It was excellent - I can only imagine how good the real thing will be! My picky wife loved it too. I'll try this again - the right way - when I have a little more time.whe
