  1. 1 pound dried black beans, rinsed and soaked overnight
  2. 1 medium red onion, quartered

  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Drain the black beans and put them in a large saucepan. Add the red onion and pork fat, cover with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Simmer the black beans over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
