'Frijoles Negros' - Black Beans of Cuba



Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups black beans
water (8-9 cups)
2 tbs olive oil
2 onions, diced
1 capsicum, diced
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black peppercorns, crushed
1 tsp oregano powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1-2 tsp paprika
1-2 bay leaves
3-4 tbs balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup (Spanish) wine
Method:
Soak beans overnight  in plenty of water; cook for 1/2 hour (or, cook them in a pressure cooker - no soaking required). If you don't throw first water, your beans will be darker. 
Heat oil in a big pot, sautee onion, capsicum and garlic. Add beans with some water, mix in all spices. Cook for 1-2 hours, or until beans soft, but still whole. Take 1 cup of beans out; mash them. Return to pot and add vinegar and wine. Stir and bring to boil again.
Serve over rice; add freshly sliced onion (sprinkle on top).
