- Rinse off beans and drain them thoroughly. Set the beans aside.
- Add oil to a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. When shimmering, add the onions and garlic. Sauté until softened and translucent.
- Add the King’s Pepper seasoning and sauté for one minute longer.
- Add the beans, tomatoes, beer, water, and salt.
- Bring the beans to a simmer, then cover and reduce heat to low.
- Simmer beans for between 2 and 2 1/2 hours, until beans are tender.
- Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, and check for seasoning. Adjust seasoning as needed. If you want to thicken the potlicker (the liquid left behind after cooking the beans), mash about 1 cup of bean and stir it back into the pot.
- Ladle beans into a bowl and top with a scoop of rice.
- Top with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro.
Serve alongside cornbread or biscuits. Serves four.
