  1. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, stir in garlic and onion, and cook a few minutes until the onion softens and turns translucent. Remove the onion, and place into a saucepan. Pour the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil into the skillet, and place over medium-high heat. Add cubed pork, and cook until well browned.
  2. Meanwhile, pour 3/4 of the black beans along with 1/4 cup water into the bowl of a blender, and pulse until finely chopped, but not quite smooth. Pour whole beans and bean puree into saucepan along with pork cubes, chicken stock, chorizo, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

I was suspicious when I looked at the ingredient list and saw that this doesn't call for any spices. And I was right to be!.. this stew is BLAND. I doused it in hot sauce once it was on my plate...

I made this last night, amazing! However, I did use spare ribs, which I cooked in the oven for a few hours, and let the stew simmer for a couple of more hours with a bit of cumin and paprika. ...

Nice taste, easy to make. Too much liquid though, I doubled the recipe but should not have doubled the chicken stock. Either that or add more beans.

This stew is SENSATIONAL. I had leftover pork tenderloin I didn't know what to do with, so I chose this recipe not really knowing what to expect. Boy am I glad I did. It was a huge hit with m...

This was a wonderful stew and I really am not a stew eater. I made it one evening to serve for lunch the next day and I had two bowls of it before I went to bed. I could not put it down.

This was awesome! I did adjust the chicken broth to bean ratio for a thicker stew (1 1/2 cans beans to 1 1/4 cup chicken broth). I couln't find chorizo so I used ham and seasoned with cumin, anc...

Had an extra pork tenderloin and no time to marinate it and came across this recipe. I doubled the beans but left everything else the same and it is wonderful!! Making it for a second time tonig...

This stew was good but needed more in it. I added a can of mixed beans and another can of blakc beans.

Delicious! Instead of the pork tenderloin, I used some leftover pulled pork that I had in the fridge, and also added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of corn. Super quick, easy and yummy!
