INSTANT POT® CUBAN-STYLE BLACK BEANS
Black beans are a staple in Cuban cooking, typically served with either yellow or white rice. Give them a good squeeze of fresh lime juice, garnish with some chopped cilantro (we also add some chopped onion and a drizzle of olive oil), and you're in for a treat. These beans freeze well and reheat beautifully in the microwave.

- Cut 1 green pepper into 1-inch squares. Smash and peel 4 of the garlic cloves. Put the green pepper and garlic into a large pot with the beans, ham hock, bay leaves and 1 tablespoon salt. Add 2 quarts water and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and simmer until the beans are tender, an hour or more.
- Meanwhile, make a sofrito. Cut the remaining ½ green pepper into ¼-inch dice. Peel and finely chop the remaining garlic. Heat the olive oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the green pepper and onion and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeño (leave out the seeds if you don't want it too spicy), oregano, cumin, black pepper and 2 teaspoons salt and stir for another minute. Pour in the vinegar and scrape any browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. This is your sofrito.
- When the beans are cooked, discard the bay leaf. Remove and set aside the ham hock and let it cool. Transfer 1 cup of beans to small bowl, mash them into a paste with the back of a fork and return to the pot. Add the sofrito, then the sugar. Pull the meat from the ham hock, leaving behind any white sinew or gristle. Chop the ham into ½-inch pieces and return it to the bean pot.
- Stir the beans well and bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or so, skimming any foam from the top. Taste for salt and serve with white rice.

EMILIA'S CUBAN BLACK BEANS
My mother-in-law made this often when I lived in Miami before her death. After reading the other recipes on here, I found they all missed one very important ingredient for authenticity -- PORK! This recipe takes a while to cook, and I have also used a slow cooker with good results for those who enjoy using them. Serve over white rice. Hope you enjoy!

- In a large pot over medium heat, cook and stir the bacon with the annatto seeds until the bacon pieces are browned, crisp, and colored from the seeds.

CUBAN STYLE BLACK BEANS WITH BACON
I started experimenting with black beans awhile ago. I tried a bunch of Cuban recipes and although most were very good, I wanted the dish to look as good as it tasted. This dish combines complimentary flavors to the beans while adding tons of color. I usually serve this dish alongside rice. If you have time you can cook your own beans in a pressure cooker, but canned beans work fine too. If jalapenos are too spicy for you, you can substitute Anaheim peppers instead.

- Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat and add the pieces of bacon. If you're not using bacon, simply add about one tablespoon of olive oil and skip ahead to the fourth step.
- Cook the bacon until a lot of the fat has rendered out and the pieces have almost halved in size, but are not crispy. There's no need to crisp the bacon because it just gets soggy again when you simmer it with the beans!
- Use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove the bacon and set it to drain on paper towels. Leave the bacon fat in the saucepan.
- Add the onions to the hot bacon fat and stir to coat. Turn heat down to medium-low and cook for about 2 minutes, until they've reduced in size but aren't crisping or caramelized. They should be beginning to turn translucent and soft, but not quite there yet.
