Bud Spencer-style beans, or Trinity-Style Beans, are a delicious, creamy and nutritious main course, inspired by a highlight scene in a classic among 1970s Italian westerns, “They Called Him Trinity.”
In this film, in fact, the scene in which Terence Hill eats with gusto an entire pan of beans in a very few minutes is epic: it is said to have been filmed only once, with Terence Hill fasting for 24 hours – according to some even 48 hours – so as to make the binge realistic.
It was from this scene that the definition of bean-western, an all-Italian strand in the wake of the spaghetti-western, was born.
Many variations of this recipe circulate, with sausage or bacon; with rosemary and carrot.
I chose the “classic” recipe.
- 3 cups of black beans
- 1 large onion
- 1 whole red pepper
- 2 peeled tomatoes
- 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- black pepper to taste
The recipe is uniquely simple.
You coarsely slice onions and dip them in olive oil.
Let it brown and then add the beans.
Stir quickly and add salt, chili and pepper.
Keep stirring over low heat and finally add the tomatoes.
Season with salt and let everything cook over medium heat until the beans are tender.
Be careful…..the beans are very spicy!!!
