Black beans and rice cooked together with spices are one of the best side dishes to accompany any meal! I found this recipe while browsing the internet and it is so good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pot, add olive oil and sauté garlic and sofrito for a minute. Add salt, pepper, cumin and oregano to sofrito and mix. Add beans and mix well. Add tomato sauce and beer or broth and mix.
  2. After 5 minutes, add apple cider vinegar and stir. Add 2-3 cups of already cooked white rice (at room temperature) and mix well. Cook until all is absorbed (about 10-15 minutes).
  3. Let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Another thing. The authentic Cuban recipe does NOT contain either beer or tomatoes. That is an abomination.

good recipe, too much tomato sauce. I will make this again but eliminate the tomato sauce completely. Also the recipe does not indicate how much apple cider vinegar to use, so I used a tablespoon.

Tasty & relatively quick to pull together. Decided to make it with broth - felt like that way the sofrito flavors were nice and bright. Found the original recipe online - you should only use a drizzle of the apple cider vinegar.
