    According to "The Book of Spanish Cuisine," these "Jewish Uncle to Luke Beans" are a typical dish of Madrid cuisine made from beans cooked with pork fat. The dish is named after Uncle Luke, owner of a tavern in Madrid at Sevilla street. This recipe was very popular between 1850 and 1865, and is still served in some Madrid bars.

      We enjoyed these beans -- they make a nice hearty meal or side; especially if you want to serve them over rice. Loved the flavors. Made for PRMR, August, 2013

      I found some Jamon Serrano and used that instead of the ham! Expensive, yes, but definitely worth it. My guests at my tapas party raved about the beans!!
