"Fabada Asturiana" or Asturian bean and sausage casserole is a typical and very traditional dish from Asturias, made with beans, sausage, ham, meat, and tomatoes. It is a perfect dish for winter, satisfying and warming.
Gather the ingredients.
Pour beans into a large pot or bowl and cover with cold water. Soak the beans, ham, and bacon overnight.
The next day, drain water from beans. Place beans in a large pot of cold water with the garlic, onion and bay leaf. Place on stove and turn on high. When the water comes to a boil, add all the other ingredients.
Cover the pot half-way and simmer for 2.5 to 3 hours, cooking until the beans are tender. After approximately 1.5 hours, add the saffron threads and paprika.
Taste the fabada and add salt if necessary. Since sausage and bacon are salty, you may not need to add any salt.
Cut the sausage, bacon, and roast into serving-size pieces. Serve in soup bowls with bread.
