  • Stephen Ceideburg
  • 1 lb Black beans
  • 8 oz Dried beef (carne seca)
  • 8 oz Pork butt
  • 8 oz Smoked sausage

  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped parsley

Pick over beans and wash well. Cover with water and cook for about 2 1/2 hours in a covered saucepan. Adding boiling water as needed to keep beans well covered with water.
As the beans are cooking, prepare the meats. Remove fat from beef and pork. Dice the meats and sausages, removing as much fat from sausages as you can, and bake at 350 degrees F. until well done.
Cover ham hock with water and add chopped onion. Cook for about 1 hour. Remove meat from bone. Discard fat and bone.
Dice bacon and bake at 350 degrees F. until well done. Drain the fat and set bacon aside.
When beans are almost cooked (make sure there is plenty of water), add all the meats and seasonings to taste. Simmer 30 minutes longer, or until beans are completely done.
