Pork Roast and white beans

“Beans are highly nutritious and satisfying, they can also be delicious if and when properly prepared, and they posses over all vegetables the great advantage of being just as good, if not better, when kept waiting, an advantage in the case of people whose disposition or occupation makes it difficult for them to be punctual at mealtime.” Andre Simon (1877-1970)

This recipe is comfort food at its best.  Add some cornbread and you have a great meal.

3 to 4 pound pork roast
1 pound bag Great Northern white beans
1 small onion, chopped (optional)
Salt and Pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Soak beans overnight or according to package directions.  Next morning, add roast and beans to crockpot, along with chopped onion, garlic and pepper. (I don’t salt my beans until they are done).  Add enough water to cover beans and leave a little space at the top or crockpot will run over when it starts to boil.  Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or low 7 to 8 hours until done.  Serve with cornbread.  Enjoy!

  1. What size bag of beans?

  2. would like to know if country no bone pork ribs would do instead of the roast?

  3. This looks so good & I love beans. I’ll be making it soon for these cold days in Pa. What I’d like to ask you is, in the picture you posted there is another plate with something fried on it, could you tell us what it is because it looks great too.

  4. Can I use pinto beans?

  5. Made this tonight and we loved it! I used navy beans instead of northern beans, added the garlic and salt and pepper but did not add the optional onion. I also added one tablespoon of sugar and added mashed potato flakes to thicken the water/ liquid. Hank you for the recipe! I look forward to reading all the recipes you post.

  6. Do u use same water that u soaked the beans in and how much water?

  7. Do you brown the roast before adding it to the crockpot?

  10. Sounds yummy and perfect now that our weather has turned cooler. It’s cooking in my crockpot at this very moment. I went with a lean pork butt roast so we’ll see how that turns out. I’ll be sure to share my results!

  11. Sounds and looks really good! Gonna have to give it a try!

  12. I just made this for dinner. It was delicious! I like ham in beans, but it has too much sodium. This recipe solves that problem. I will make it again. Thank you!!!

  13. can you use a pork butt roast or is that too fatty?

  14. My husband loves lima beans. Would limas be a good substitution for the white beans?

  15. How much flavor does the pork roast have? I like flavorful meat and I’m wondering if mine would need some more spice.

  16. Can you cook a Rump Roast in a Slow Cooker overnight without the beans

  17. Just put it in my crockpot for dinner tonight….

  18. I enjoy your recipes so much. I sent them to friends and family and get them on Facebook. I also print most all of them,
