  1. Bring water to boil in a pot. Add pork / chicken and bring water back to boil. Remove scum from upper layer as water is boiling. Thereafter, add black beans (and the optional ingredients) and allow to boil for 2 minutes before reducing heat to low. Simmer till soup reduced to approximately 1 1/2 soup bowls. The soup will taste great if it is simmered for at least 2 1/2 hours and try not to add water midway through cooking. If you are double boiling, place beans and pork / chicken (plus optional ingredients) in double boiler and add 2 soup bowls of boiling hot water. Cover lid and double boil for 3 hours.
