This recipe is for a cold evening. Its classic comfort food at a very reasonable cost. Brown the pork cubes and season with salt and pepper. Remove the meat and sweat off onions and garlic in the brown residue the meat left (its for extra flavor). Add the can of tomatoes and about a table spoon of sugar or golden syrup, just to take the tartness out of the tomatoes. Add a glass or two of red wine and a chicken or vegetable stock cube. You can use some thyme or oreganium as well for extra flavour. At this stage add the 2 cans of beans ( you can use dry beans, but use extra water, as the beans absorb alot...and add an extra 45min -1 hr cooking time) Pour water over just to cover the ingredients. This can be successfully cooked in a slow cooker, on top of the stove in a heavy based pot, or in a pressure cooker.50min in a pressure cooker, 1.5 hrs in a pot on the stove, 6 hrs in a slow cooker. I prefer using the pressure cooker, its quicker and uses less electricity. Remember to adjust your liquid and cooking time if you use dry beans. To accompany this dish, I would either use brown rice, or cous-cous. Enjoy
