Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Here is how you cook long-grain, white rice. Works every time:

1. Put rice in pot.

2. Wash the rice a couple of times (run under a tap, swirl it around with your hand, drain, repeat.)

3. Add enough water to cover the rice. Use your index finger as a depth gauge. When the water level above the rice is up to about the first knuckle joint, you're good.

4. Put pot on stove, on high heat. Cover such that the lid is tilted a bit and the steam can escape. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.

5. When the water has just about boiled down to the level of the rice, remove from the heat and put the lid on fully. Let sit for 20 minutes, then fluff up the rice with a fork and serve.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
I am confused a bit.

What exactly do you need? A dish that includes black beans, veggies and rice? Or instructions on how to not make the rice watery?
 Quoting: PopeJean


Both

I usually make a sofrito, than put sofrito, oil, onion and green pepper in tiny peices in a pot add 3 cups of rice and 4 cans of black beans or 1 pk dried after soaking,and 3 cups water. I either burn the bottom of the pot, or if I put 4 cups water its soggy rice or too much liquid. my flavor is good, just dont like the consistancy, so I was looking for another good authentic recipe

I've always found red beans and rice to be very easy to prepare.

One pkg of dried red beans - rinse and then soak in water overnight;
celery, onion, bell pepper diced (the Holy Trinity);
Coriander, thyme, bay leaf, ham hock;
Let cook slowly all day on low.

Cook rice separately. Ladle beans over rice and top with a pork sausage patty. I love to liberally use tobasco over my beans and rice.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Since you are using precooked beans (canned beans are cooked, you are only heating them up), then I suggest you make you rice separately, following the instructions that comes on the package of rice.

If you are adding fresh veg to anything and then cooking it down, water from the veg is 'added to' the water you add. Thus a spaghetti sauce with lots of bell pepper and onion will, if you are using fresh bell pepper and onion become more watery once the veg cooks down.

I personally would use dried beans, cook those by themselves (with herbs and spices add to that) then cook the veg by itself, and the rice by itself, then mix all three together before serving. This way I can drain the beans if there is too much water, drain the veg if there is too much water.

Rice is pretty easy to get the right mix of rice and water when cooked by itself.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
here is how they do it where I live:

in a pressure cooker, put in 8 cops water
with 2 cups of red or black beans, (dried)
add some fresh garlic. (do not add salt. it´ll make the beans hard as a rock)
cook for 40 minutes.
In a different pot cook your plain white rice with some chopped onion and chopped sweet bell pepper and salt.

combine the cooked beans and rice along with additional salt and herbs and Sala Inglesa.

From scratch?

1) Go to a fertile field (bring black beans and rice).
2) Plant and water beans and rice.
3) After a few months, harvest black beans and rice.
4) Cook them, then combine.
5) Enjoy!


It's pretty basic...

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Cooking rice with the beans inside is the hardest rice you can cook. I don' know what you call sofrito but it is basically cilantro, culantro, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, onions.

You sautee the sofrito and add the beans (any color). Put in tomato sauce, the brand the begins with G, other have flour and it spoils the mixing. Let it sautee a bit more. Add the rice and water.

This is the most important step, water should cover the rice slightly if it is arborio. More if its long grain rice (a mystery to me why anyone would use this). Move the mixture with a slotted spoon, never use a solid spoon to turn rice. Let this water boil down a bit and when you see bubbles on the top lower the heat and cover the rice. If you live in high alitute like me there should be a bit more water.

Halfway through cooking (probably half an hour if one can of beans and 2 cups of rice), move the rice again. This movement has to be from the edge towards the center and up. Any other kind will mess up the rice.
