  • Well, i cook a pork butt to go with this and the pork butt is usually seven or eight pounds so it works out!  And this is the type of meal that only gets better with time!!!  The liquid in the black beans gets absorbed in the white rice, so it is thin.

    i did this for my daughters birthday, Did Mojo pork butt on the smoker, black beans and rice. A mojo sauce goes nice afterward to squirt over the pork and rice and beans. It was a hit and I was very pleased.

  • I have tried this out on groups of people who have never heard of it -- i would have to explain how it is served or plated.  Never heard anyone that wasn't impressed with it.  It is kind of like a meal in itself like chili or "hoppin john"..

    This sounds terrific! Love  the garlic. I've been on a garlic kick lately, so his fits the bill. Thanks for the recipe.

  • The rice with peas is usually called "dirty rice" in the Carribean.  It is very good, and i can make a  meal out of just the dirty rice!

    When you say "peas" are you talking about pigeon peas?

    This is arroz con gandules. It's the "mashed potatoes" to the holiday meal in Puerto Rico.
