Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound salt pork, cut into 4 chunks
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cups white rice
  • 6 cups water
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans red kidney beans, drained, rinsed and drained again
Directions
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat, and add the salt pork. Cook for several minutes, until the pork renders a tablespoon or so of fat. Add the onion, garlic, and pepper to the pot, lower the heat to medium-low, and continue to cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Add the rice to the pot and stir to combine. Pour in the water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, covered, for 20 minutes. Check the pot and stir its contents to make sure that the rice isn't sticking to the bottom.

  • Stir in the beans into the rice and cook for 10 minutes more. Remove the salt pork and discard. Serve immediately.
