• Black beans
  • Onion
  • Green pepper
  • Garlic
  • 4 bay leaves
  • Oregano – just a little
  • Cinamon – rounded table spoon
  • Pork loin back ribs – smoked ribs if you have them!  ( unfortunately here in USA I do not )
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


  1. let the beans soak over night
  2. chop up everything and mix with beans – except for pork  and salt !  Leave that aside until taste tests are done
  3. level up with water in your pressure cooker – should cover everything plus a little more to account for when you add the port ribs
  4. salt to taste.  ( remember its easy to keep adding until you have gone too far.  Look for the flavor in the subconscious part of your brain
  5. cut up the ribs and add
  6. seal up your pressure cooker – get it whistling and then turn it down to minimum that will still lift your jiggler – Cook for about 18 minutes thus
  7. once the 18 minutes are up do the natural release and open up the pot.
  8. Put the pot back on the stove and simmer / low bubble the pot for another 1/2 hour at least to thicken up the broth.  This is important.  You will see why with sufficient experimentation
