only one problem….
My beans are never soft enough. There are always a handful that are still crunchy in the middle and I think that totally messes up a good batch of beans and rice. Anyway, for this meal, I soaked them overnight (20 hours to be precise) then simmered them for 3 hours, and the little buggers were still crunchy. So I had the brilliant idea to throw them in the pressure cooker….for 7 min, then for 11min, then finally for 7 more minutes.
There was no rhyme or reason to my selection of time, I just didn’t want them to turn to mush. But the little bastards were still a little crunchy. I had to serve it, because we were all so hungry I thought we might turn into monsters if we didn’t eat. And by we, I really mean me.
Next time I think I might just buy canned…..
