Pork And Beans From Scratch

In my pork and beans from scratch recipe, I use pork butt and dried black beans. This cut of pork is typically sold in 4 pound portions so I use half and then freeze the remainder for future dishes. This recipe is quick to pull together – the hardest thing is remembering to soak the dried beans overnight!

The pork and beans cook for 3 hours on high and 6 hours on low, resulting in melt in your mouth pork and creamy, soft (but not mushy!) beans. This dish is delicious on its own, but if you’re looking to supplement it with some sides, I’d recommend Parker House rolls and some sautéed haricot verts.
