Technical Question about Red Beans with Pickle Meat

Hi There,
I am developing a vegetarian version of red beans with pickle meat. After doing some research, most people say that adding acidic foods to beans makes them tough. Pickle Meat is brined in salt and white vinegar and then is cooked from the get go with the red beans. Can anyone explain how the beans get soft with all the acid from the meat?

Thanks,
kittee
