Spice Rubbed Pork & Beans
carrot, cut in small dice
zucchini, cut in small dice (optional)
savoy cabbage, chopped
leftover roast spice rubbed pork, cut in large cubes
dark beer or red wine (optional)
1 can Great Northern or Cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
In a dutch oven or large high sided pan, saute onions, garlic, and leeks in a bit of olive oil. Adding a bit of bacon or pancetta would not be a horrible thing to do at this point. Add the remaining vegetables and saute for 5 minutes or so over medium heat. Add the meat and toss to brown.
After a few minutes add the beans, enough broth to cover, and herbs. Cover and simmer until flavors are melded. You could add a bit of dark beer or red wine along with the broth. Depending on how soupy vs. stewey you want this you may want to raise the temp a bit and cook with the lid off to evaporate some of the moisture.
Serve with a crisp green salad and whole grain bread if you're fancy. If not just eat a bowl while standing in the kitchen and finishing off the remaining beer. I'll leave it to you to decide which path I chose.
