Drunken Black Beans
Show: Feb. 20th
Ingredients: Serves 4-5
1 lb. Black Beans
First, de-gas the beans: In a large pot bring 8 cups of water to a brisk boil, add the beans and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 1 hour. Discard the water.
In a large pot bring remaining water to a boil (or you can use chicken or vegetable stock). Add the de-gassed beans, return to a boil, add 1 Tbls. oil and salt. Reduce heat and simmer for about 11⁄2 hours, or until soft. Drain the beans, reserving 1 cup of the broth.
Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over high heat until it starts to smoke. Add chopped onion, tomatoes and salt to taste. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 10-minutes. Add the beans and cook for an additional 5-minutes, stirring constantly. Add the reserved broth and 1⁄4 cup tequila. Continue to cook until most of the liquid is gone.
When ready to serve, remove from the heat, add 1⁄4 cup tequila and sprinkle the cilantro over the top.
