Okay, I know a lot of you aren't bean-lovers out there, but I am because I have been to Brazil and tasted Feijoada. This is not a feijoada, but it is a simple black bean recipe - it isn't the whole deal but is something I have been playing with to perfect. The starting point is the back of the Goya bag, which is not half bad, but could use a little experimentation. I've added some extra frozen pork butt to the beans for slow cooking, and garnished with some of my refrigerator pickles. When the recipe is perfect I will post it. This version I serve mixed with rice with a fried banana on the side. One day I will do a feijoada, but to do it properly about 15 of you are going to have to come over to eat it.
