This bean recipe was born out of necessity. I was making a Sunday roast but we'd run out of potatoes. So, I grabbed these beans, spiced them up, and chucked them on the table and they were delicious. —Rach Kim

In This Recipe
Rinse and drain the beans.
Add salt pork to a cold pan and place over medium heat. Render the fan and allow the pork to crisp up.
Add in diced onion, garlic, and bell peppers. Saute until soft and onions start to turn golden brown.
Add in beans, stock, bay leaf, cayenne pepper, and paprika. Stir and then bring to a simmer. Let the beans simmer for 20 minutes until the stock reduces and thickens.
Just before serving, stir in a splash of cream for richness.
