This Italian Slow Roasted Pork with Rosemary White Beans is what the Bennett crew calls “pork and beans”. Most definitely not the traditional pork and beans I grew up on, you know, the kind that’s heavily laced with sweet barbeque sauce and lots of smoky bacon.
Although the traditional pork and beans is a delicious dish, especially at a summer barbecue, this Italian slow roasted pork with rosemary white beans is a lovely and aromatic alternative for the Autumn and Winter months. It’s a simple and humble dish that is herby and lush in flavor and hearty in texture.
If I’m making this dish on a weeknight, and I forgot to soak the beans the night before, I use organic canned beans and it works just as well. I also use these rosemary white beans on my Arugula and White Bean Salad.
I have several pork recipes on Karista’s Kitchen, and I must say they’re all divine. But this dish definitely highlights some of my favorite flavors… Italian herbs (which happen to grow abundantly almost year round in my herb garden).
Rosemary, oregano, and Italian parsley are all exquisitely aromatic and beautifully flavor this pork recipe. Combined with tomatoes, onions and garlic and set on a bed of rosemary white beans, this delicious Italian slow roasted pork makes a distinctive and enticing fall meal. And of course it’s a slow cooker meal which is a super plus!
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love!
