Lani posted her homemade Pork & Beans recipe and I suddenly remember my Dad’s version – delectable chicken chunks sauteed with canned handful bits of pork and lots of beans. I cooked it right away after reading Lani’s post but my busy working sched never gave me the chance to have it published. And here am I enjoying the meal again with my family sans chicken.
4-6 tbsp of minced garlic
1 medium sized onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
Pork belly, cut into chunks
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp of sugar
1 can of baked beans in tomato sauce (I bought a local Chinese brand)
Heat oil in a pan. Saute garlic until aromatic. Add pork and saute until brown. Throw in the onion and tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are crushed. Add a cup of water and bring to boil. Season with salt, pepper and 2 tbsp of soy sauce. Simmer until the pork rind is fork tender; the pork fat literally melts in your mouth; adding more water if necessary. Stir in the canned beans and simmer for about 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. That’s it!
Also, check out Lani’s version if you don’t wanna use canned beans.
