Slow Cooker Pork and Beans
Combine a pound of dried pinto or pink beans with a small pork loin roast for a delicious meal of pork and beans."I cooked for a longer time since I didn't soak my pink beans, like I normally would. I added oregano towards the end, and needed to add more water then, for consistency I like (and because I didn't pre-soak). It was delicious and so easy! I shredded the cooked pork and just mixed it all together like a stew and served over brown rice. " - Ksbebe

Slow Cooker Pork and Beans Preparation
Rinse and sort the beans and add them to the slow cooker. Whisk together some of the water with the soup mix, chili powder and pepper and add to the slow cooker. Add the remaining water to the slow cooker and stir in the jalapenos. Place roast into the cooker, cover and cook on high for 7 to 8 hours, turning roast over halfway through, if possible. Roast will be fall apart tender.
Carefully remove the roast and set aside, loosely tenting with foil to keep warm. To thicken the beans, remove 1/2 cup of the beans, mash thoroughly and stir back into the pot. Taste the beans, add salt, only if needed, and cayenne pepper or Cajun seasoning to taste, if desired. To serve, spoon beans over rice and serve pieces of roast on the top or on the side. Add a garden salad or green vegetable, bread and iced tea.
Cook's Notes: Can substitute a homemade onion soup mix using 3 tablespoons of dried onion flakes, 1 tablespoon of beef base (like Better than Bouillon) or 2 tablespoons of granular beef bouillon, 2 teaspoons of onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon of seasoned salt (like Lawry's). I will definitely be making this again and next round I plan to use the homemade onion soup seasonings along with some sauteed onion with bacon and maybe even add in a packet of Sazon seasoning too, so add in your own favorite pinto bean seasonings. You can also shred the meat and stir it back into the beans, however, the meat will take up most all of the juice from the beans.
