I’ve been noticing lately that Pork Loin Roast have become part of the revolving grocery store ad cycle. Pork Loin is a great lean protein and what’s easier than a crock pot to cook it in. Check out this delicious time saving recipe…
Cooked in a slow cooker, such as a crock-pot, this is a low-fat version of a fast food dish.
Serves: 22 person(s)
Preparation Time: 25 mins
Cooking Time: 9 hrs
Extra Time: 8 hrs
(for soaking)(note: above cooking time is for slow cooker)
3 lb extra lean pork roast
1 lb dry pinto beans
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp salt
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilis
1 crockpot of water
In the slow cooker, cover the beans with hot water (about 1/2 an inch above the beans). Turn the slow cooker to high for 1 hour and then turn it off. Leave to soak over night.
In the morning, remove beans (reserving cooking water), and put roast in bottom of cooker. Add remaining ingredients (including the beans and their soaking water) and more water if needed to cover all the ingredients. Cook on high 1 hour, and then on low 6 hours. Remove meat and shred with two forks. Return the meat to the slow cooker. Cook on high 1 more hour, or until the beans are tender.
Serve over a bed of lettuce. Can top with lowfat grated cheese, chopped onions, tomatoes, fat free sour cream and lowfat tortilla chips.

This meat and bean mixture also makes wonderful burritos.
