Cuban style black beans with brown rice

1 lb dry black beans
3 cups water
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
2 bay leaves
2 tsp Worcestershire

Add all ingredients to pot and pressure cook 22 minutes
natural release at least 10 minutes
blend or mash a bit to thicken juice

Results:  Nice.  A bit bland.  Consider cooking in broth instead of water.  Or adding a bit more seasoning – oregano, maybe?  There wasn’t a ton of liquid, I prefer a bit more to soak down and flavor the rice.  Maybe would add an additional 1/4 to 1/2 cup water next time.

Brown rice – 2 cups rice to 2.5 cups water, add a spoonful of bacon fat for flavor, pressure 23 minutes on high.
