4 1/4 lbs black beans
1 1/4 lbs dried beef
1 lb salt cured pork
1 lb bacon
1 lb smoked sausage
6 pieces dried sausage
1 piece smoked beef tongue
2 pigs ears
2 pigs tail (or equal amount of ox tail)
2 pigs trotters
1 large chopped onion
1 medium chopped onlion
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 cloves garlic
3 bay leaves
hot peppers
rice, manioc, couscous or fried, shredded kale


Place beans and salted meats in separate bowls. Cover each with water. Keep covered with water for 24 hours; but change water every 6 hours. Put all of the ingredients into a very large cooking pan and cover with water. Add ½ orange, 3 bay leaves, 1 medium chopped onion and pepper. Cook everything over a low heat and gradually withdraw the meats as they are cooked to prevent them from becoming too soft. In a separate pan heat a tablespoon of soybean oil and fry the 6 cloves of garlic and the large chopped onion. Pour into the beans and mix well. Temporarily remove a cup of the beans and crush with a wooden spoon to thicken the sauce. Serve with white rice, manioc or fried, shredded kale along with hot peppers.
