What’s for Dinner? Slow Cooker Cuban Style Pork and Black Bean Stew

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on March 15, 2010 0 Comments

This is probably the best this dish has ever turned out for me. The flavor was excellent!

canola or vegetable oil

1 small pork roast, trimmed and cut into chunks

1 onion, chopped

3-4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 T Adobo seasoning (I used my homemade)

1 t each: oregano and cumin

4 cups water

1 cup dried black beans

fresh lime juice to taste

fresh cilantro leaves, snipped, to serve

Heat a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add a little oil.

Add pork chunks and brown. Stir in onion and cook about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, Adobo and spices, and cook another minute or so.

Increase heat to high and add water and beans; bring to a simmer.

Carefully add mixture to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook on low 4 hours, or til beans are tender. Stir in lime juice. Taste and adjust as desired.

I served the stew with cilantro (with mine having a dollop or two of The Flying Scotsman Habanero Hot Sauce). That sauce is posted here: http://www.gather.com/viewImage.action?fileId=3096224746274458http://media-files.gather.com/images/d460/d274/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
