Dinner’s On! Slow-Cooked Tuscan Pork with White Beans

Let me just take a moment to recommend a recipe to you all. This has got to be the easiest, cheapest little number ever. This time of year, we can all use a bit of that cheap and easy  in our lives! But it is also super good and kid friendly too. Try it with a salad and crusty bread for the easiest ever entertaining menu!

2 c. dried navy beans (soaked overnight)

1 T. minced fresh sage, divided

2 t. kosher salt

1/2 t. coarse pepper

8 garlic cloves

2 1/2 pounds pork shoulder, boston butt, or picnic roast

4 c. chicken broth

2 bay leaves

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mince a teaspoon of fresh sage and three garlic cloves. Grind in (with the side of your knife) a teaspoon of kosher salt and the pepper. Rub all over the pork. Place beans, 4 c. chicken broth, remaining five cloves garlic, remaining sage, teaspoon salt, and bay leaves in a dutch oven. Lay the pork on it, and bring to a boil. Cover and pop in the oven for 4 hours, or until pork is very tender. Discard bay leaves. Pull pork into chunks, and serve with the beans on the side. Would be beautiful in a shallow bowl with the pork on top and some fresh sage to garnish.
