Slow-Cooker Beer-Braised Pork and Black Bean Soup

Slow-Cooker Beer-Braised Pork and Black Bean Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 12-ounce bottles of beer (preferably lager)
  • 1 can chopped chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound dried black beans, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork butt (pork shoulder)
  • Kosher salt

Preparation:

In the bowl of a slow cooker, combine the beer, 3 cups water, the chilies, adobo sauce, cumin, onion, beans, pork, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Set the slow cooker to low and cook, covered, until the beans are tender and the pork pulls apart easily, 11 hours. Using a fork, separate the pork into large pieces.

 

— I really had high hopes for this recipe! Along with another recipe to use my left over beer – it looked tasty!

I ended up putting a whole can of the chipotle chilies in adobo sauce instead of the smidgen they said to use. I could be in big big trouble tomorrow at lunch, but tonight it was tasty!

All in all the taste was just so-so, so i don’t see it being cooked again.
