Stewed Red Kidney Beans

Feijao Guisado

FEIJAO GUISADO / BEAN STEW

3 15.5 ounce cans of Red Kidney Beans
1/2 cup of linguica sliced crosswise
4 tbsp olive oil
1 finely chopped onion
3 cloves of garlic, sliced crosswise
1 bay leaf
3 tsp of tomato paste
1 tsp of salt
3 cups of water

1. In a medium pot add the olive oil, bay leaf and linguica. Once the fat is rendered and the linguica slices start to look a little browned, add the onion and garlic.

2. When the onion becomes translucent, add the tomato paste and mix well with a wooden spoon and add the water.

3. Bring the water to the boil, add the salt and let the ingredients simmer until the sauce starts to thicken a bit, approx 30 minutes.

4. Add the beans and cook over low heat for 45 minutes. If the sauce dries out too much, you can add a little more water. Also, you can add hot sauce for additional flavor.
