Recipe 4 All: Drunken Beans ( Frijoles Borrachos ) Recipe

Drunken Beans ( Frijoles Borrachos )

Yield: 6 Servings
2cups Dried Pinto Beans
5cups Water -- Or More As Needed
3cups Beer (Do Not Use A Dark Beer
4oz Salt Pork -- Chopped
1tablespoon Peanut Oil
md Onions -- Chopped
6  Garlic Cloves -- Sliced
1tablespoon Vinegar -- Preferably Cider
2teaspoon Dried Oregano, Preferably
1teaspoon Salt -- Plus More To Taste

Pick through the beans and rinse them carefully, looking for any gravel or grit. Rinse the beans a second time. Place the beans in a stockpot or large, heavy saucepan. Cover them with the water and beer and add the remaining ingredients, except the salt. Bring the beans just to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer the beans, uncovered. Plan on a total cooking time of 2 to 2½ hrs. After 1 hour, stir the beans up from the bottom and check the water level. If there is not at least 1 inch more water than beans, add enough hot water to bring it up to that level. Check the beans after another 30 mins, repeating the process. Add the salt after the beans are well softened, and continue simmering. Check them every 15 mins, keeping the level of the water just above the beans. There should be extra liquid at the completion of the cooking time, but the beans should not be watery. If you wish, remove ½ to 1 cup of the beans, mash them, and return them to the pot for a thicker liquid. Serve warm. Then beans keep for several days and are even better reheated. Serves 6 to 8.
