  • 7 cups water
  • 1 cup of aliños sauce see the recipe
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 pound of yuca peeled and cut into pieces

  • Wash the beans and soak overnight in cold water. Drain the beans and place in a large pot and add the water, aliños and beef. Over medium-high heat, bring the beans to a boil, then cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Allow the beans to cook until almost tender, approximately 2 hours.
  • Add the corn, potatoes, yuca, carrots, plantain and salt. Cover and cook for another 30 to 40 minutes or until the beans are fully cooked. (Add additional water as necessary). Add fresh cilantro and serve with white rice.
