Homemade beans with smoked pork and herbs-step-by-step recipe!


We boiled the beans ... I know it's old school, but I have a method learned from my mother ... let it soak beans overnight or just couple of hours . Washed and cleaned very well . Put to a boil in cold water then when it begins to boil, ... throw that first water, rinse beans with cold water, put to boil again, in....cold water. Repeat this procedure at least three times ...

I do not know the exact significance of this, but I think it is related to gases produced by beans to our digestive system!

Pork bones, put to cook separately because they have different cooking time than the beans!
Let see....my little MISE-EN-PLACE:

  • DRY HERBS
  • TOMATO SAUCE
  • FRESH HERBS(DILL, ITALIAN PARSLEY AND SAVORY)
  • CANADIAN BACON & HOT LINKS SAUSAGES
  • ONION,CARROTS, CELERY, PARSNIP AND RED,ORANGE AND YELLOW BELL PEPPER, ALL OF THEM DICED!

Nice colors, right?????

DRY HERBS:
  • dehydrated vegetable-1-2 tbsp
  • thyme
  • savory
  • smoked paprika
  • dry chili flake
regular tomato sauce

diced fresh herbs: dill, flat parsley and some fresh savory!



To finish this marvelous , we caramelized onion in a couple of tsp olive oil, until it becomes golden, add hot links sausages ...


Deboned the pork ...cut in pieces
Mix the onion and sausages with beans!Let it simmering for cca 15 minutes

Add some of the diced fresh herbs and SERVE!!!


BON APPETITE!!!

Liliana,

atata timp cat exista link catre blogul meu, nu ma deranjeaza!

Mi se pare interesant cum, pentru o reteta atata de simpla ai avut nevoie de fotografiile altei persoane...Just saying!;)

Toate bune!
