 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Pork Cubes
  • 2 lb Red Kidney Beans
  • (This works fine with
  • White Kidney Beans
  • And Great with Lentils)
  • 4 Red or White Onions
  • -Whole
  • 6 lg Tomatoes
  • 6 md Sized Potatoes - Cubes
  • 2 lg Chorizo de Bilbao
  • (if this is not available
  • Any Spanish Sausage with
  • Lard will do), cut into
  • Thin slices
  • 1 Ham Bone and/or
  • 1/2 c Ham Scraps
  • 1 c Olive Oil
  • 1 cl Garlic
  • Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste



Soak the beans in water overnight. Drain. Put in a Large Pot with the
Pork Cubes, Onions, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Sausages the Ham Bone and/or Ham
Scraps and add water about 3/4 full. (Use a 2 Gallon Pot or at least 1 1/2
gl. to have enough liquid in it). Bring to a boil and once it starts to
boil bring down the heat to simmer until the beans are tender.
In a sauce pan, saute the Garlic in Olive Oil. When Garlic is brown
add the rest of the Olive Oil and a few halved tomatoes and bring to a
slight boil. Add this to your beans and season to taste with Salt, Pepper
and a little Vinegar. Continue to let the Beans simmer for a few minutes
before serving.
If you cannot get good and juicy tomatoes you may use 1can/450 g. of
Tomato Sauce and add this to your sauted Garlic and bring to a boil. You
need not add Vinegar since the Tomato sauce normally has vinegar already.
If you are using Tomato Paste you must add a little vinegar.
Serve hot with bread and wine. (This goes perfectly well with Garlic
Bread and Red Wine)
This can serve an army. However I prefer to take the left-over where
the beans has already soaked the sauce and the flavor of the sausage and
the ham. Just keep the leftover in your Frig and re-heat before serving.
You may opt to let the whole dish cool down and store in your refrigerator
for a day or two. Reheat it and serve hot.
I have never bothered to look at the calorie count of this dish but I
suppose it is very high. But then there is always a price for good food.
Have a happy meal! DDD ED MONTALVAN
