Ivan’s Beans / Ivanov grah


Evening before soak raw beans in the cold water.

Fry finely chopped onions and garlic in a big cooking pot. When softened, add flour and mix until browned. To it add smoked meats (e.g. ribs, bacon, etc.), beans, and water. Salt and black pepper per taste. Cook for a few hours (until beans are soft). Near the end add a cube of beef concentrate.
