1 pound black beans, dry
7 cups water
1 medium green pepper coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups onions, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 bay leaf
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vinegar, (or lemon juice)
6 cup rice, cooked in unsalted water
4 oz pimentos, sliced and drained
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Pick through beans to remove bad ones. Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain and rinse.
In large soup pot or Dutch oven, stir together beans, water, green pepper, onion, oil, bay leaves, garlic, and salt. Cover and boil for one hour.
Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for three to four hours or until beans are very tender. Stir occasionally and add water if needed.
Remove and mash about 1/3 of beans. Return to pot. Stir and heat through.
When ready to serve, remove bay leaves and stir in vinegar or lemon juice.
Serve over rice. Garnish with sliced pimento and lemon wedges.
