Cuban Style Dinner-Part 2 “Black Bean Stew”

This is great on roasts and rice!! 


Makes about 6-8 servings:

2 cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
3 – 16ounce cans black beans (I substituted 1 can with black eyed pea )
1 teaspoon ground cumin
few dashes of hot sauce (any brand)
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 cup of Cuban Pork marinade OR 1/2 cup Mojo Criollo

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add garlic, onion, and bell pepper, stir until tender (about 10 minutes).  Add the tomatoes and cook for another 10 minutes.

Add the beans, marinade/mojo criollo, cumin, and hot sauce, stir to blend.   Add salt and pepper (you may not need salt and pepper depending on how strong the marinade is). 

Simmer, covered until heated through – about 20 minutes.  Serve this hot over rice and/or roast.
