Soak your beans overnight in a large bowl of water. Drain, rinse, and pick them over.


In a large pot, add oil and brown the meat. When you have some color on your meat, add in the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about another minute. Add in your beans and water to cover by a few inches. Cover the pot and let come to a boil. Skim the scum off the top and lower to a simmer. Let your beans cook until soft – this will usually take anywhere from two to four hours.


When the beans are soft, add in your tomato paste and salt. Let it cook for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Freeze as needed.
