I haven’t quite finished cooking this but I did sample a not quite cooked bean and it was screaming for salt. I’m making a double recipe so I put abot 1 1/2 tbsp of salt in the water. I’m in the philippines and boy do I miss my pressure cooker back in Canada for cooking beans. It would have been very handy here. After two days of soaking, I’m still past 2 hours of boiling and the beans aren’t done yet. I browned my meat too, before adding it to the water.
