I made this last night for guests and everyone raved! Not being a beer drinker, I used low sodium chicken broth instead and used the entire can of black beans. I served this with orzo, a green salad and, as suggested, a nice red wine. Thanks, Alex. This is definitely a keeper!
Tried this recipe. Though the idea was great I think it could do without the cornmeal. It made the sauce very mushy and grainy and sloppy looking. If I made this again I would do without the cornmeal and just quickly brown the pork and let it simmer in the sauce. Also the peaches gave it a nice flavor but I'm not big on pork/peaches. Might forgo the peaches too. The beans, salsa, and beer were an excellent idea though.
So easy my husband didn't even screw it up! A taste we weren't expecting but enjoyed on the first bite and more by the last. The first time this was made we used a generic Japanese brand salsa that has no bite (live in Japan). The second time, we used an American salsa that gave the dish more of a sweet sour taste. Depending on your tastes, simple to fiddle with the salsa to tweak the flavour.
Followed the recipe exactly as stated. Its consistency is like that of a very hearty stew. It was W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L!!! Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe.
My husband was more enthusiastic about this than anything I've made in a long time. I was determined to make the cornmeal work, and I believe the solution is to make sure your oil is very hot when you first add the coated meat, and not to turn it until there is a good, golden color to the down side. Continue to turn and brown the meat until all sides are browned. This gives a crisp coating that won't fall off and get mushy, as some reviewers have complained about. I used medium salsa, but think it would be better with hot. I also added the whole can of beans and don't think it was too much. (And besides, what was I going to do with half a can of black beans?) Initially I added a little more beer, bean liquid, and peach syrup, but as it continued to cook and thicken, I just periodically added a little water. The pork was wonderfully tender, and the combination of flavors was unusual and good.
We've made this many times and love it. We skip the cornmeal, use a medium level salsa and season the pork with jerk or creole seasoning before cooking to add a little flavor. It's a great dinner for a change of pace.
I had some boneless pork chops in the freezer I needed to use up, so I used them in the recipe. I also used 1/4 cup of Corona beer, and added a couple of splashes of lime juice. Also, I didn't want half a can of black beans sitting in my fridge until the next century, so I just threw in the whole can of drained beans. This recipe came out delicious, it was a nice mix of interesting flavors.
Since I didn't have pork tenderloin on hand I used pork chops instead and it turned out great. I didn't have beer either so used water as someone else had suggested. I prepared it in a big frying pan with a tight fitting lid to ensure the chops stayed moist and tender. My family loved it and my husband asked me to make it again
