I made this recipe before going to work and let them cook in my cast iron pot (dutch oven) in the oven. The longer they cook the better!
350g dried beans (whatever you prefer or have on hand)
2 dried ancho chilli's (they aren't spicy but they add flavour)
Soak overnight and change water, then cook 60 min/100C/speed 1 REVERSE
Add 300g chopped bacon to dutch oven
150 g chopped guanciale
4 cloves garlic, or 1 elephant garlic clove
1/2 cup red wine( you can use vinegar 1/4 cup your choice)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2Tsp grainy mustard (or regular)
1/2 cup ketchup (make your own in the Thermomix! super easy!!!!)
50 g spicy chocolate ( I used up the chocolate I bought on a recent trip to mexico) It's optional.
Cook in the oven at 250F for 6-8 hours and enjoy!
You can serve it with rice or a pistachio sauce. Recipe to follow, very yummy!
