4-5 tbsp olive oil 300-400gr. cubed beef (optional, you can make it vegan too)

1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tbsp pepper paste (optional, if you don’t have just use tomato paste)

How To Make Turkish Navy Beans Dish
Soak the white navy or similar beans overnight. I used white kidney beans as we call “Horoz Fasülye” in Turkish but we have different types to and “şeker fasulye” and “dermason” are one of the well-known ones. Wash and drain and put it in a regular pan and add plentiful water and begin to cook.
Check the beans after boiling and discard the foamy part with a colander and cook for about 10-15 minutes. It will help to get rid of the natural gas inside the beans and we will continue to cook after it meets with meat 🙂
In a pressure cooker or regular big pan add olive oil and about 300gr. cubed beef and sautee until brown and the juice is clear.
Add chopped onions, stir for about 3 minutes and add the tomato and pepper paste (if using) and the precooked beans. Continue to sautee for 2-3 minutes.
Add salt, cayenne pepper, and a tsp flour and cook for 2 more minutes.
Add hot water covering about 2 cm top of the beans and cook closing the pressure cooker for at least about 20 minutes or more until beans and meat are soft.
