Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beans (Soaking): Rinse and sort beans. Cook beans with water in the pressure cooker for 30-40 minutes (I like to soak overnight, then cook for several hours in a crock pot).
  2. Marinade: Combine all marinade ingredients. Marinade meat for an hour or two.
  3. Onion Mixture: In frying pan, add oil. Cook onion, garlic and meat cubes.
  4. After meat is cooked, reserve about 1/4 of mixture for the rice (reserving the large pieces of meat for the beans).
  5. Beans: Add bacon to pan with onion mixture.
  6. After bacon is cooked, add the cooked beans and some water until it is a little thick (I like to add all the frying pan ingredients to the crock pot and cook for several more hours).
  7. Rice: Bring water to boiling. Add rice, salt and reserved onion mixture. Simmer for 20 minutes.
