Feijuada for Cinco de Mayo!

I am posting this in honor of nearly Cinco de Mayo. It just so happens that I appropriately have a couple Mexican/Latin dishes on their way, quite by chance--how it that for perfect timing. :) I have my friends Duane and Jessica to thank for this one. I was visiting her once and Duane had put this together for dinner. I knew the moment I walked in and the smell hit me, that I needed this recipe. :) This is a good one- simple and savory! Doug thought it was perfect for us- I love beans and he loves pork and rice... perfection! Thanks Duane- the name alone makes me feel much more cultured (seeing as how I can't say it)! :) He told me, but I can't remember what part of South America it comes from. Anyway- good stuff! Made a great Sunday dinner!

Feijuada (pronounced "fay-jew-ah-dah") From Duane Elgan

1 pound black or red beans
1 small chopped onion
4 garlic cloves
1 pound pork (I sliced up a pork roast)
1 pound hot sausage

Soak beans overnight then rinse
Put everything into a Crockpot
cover in an inch of water
Cook for 3 hrs on low or until beans and pork are tender (I let mine cook about 5-6)
Serve over rice.

I'm glad you guys liked the feijuada. The only thing I would add is that it is a Brazilian dish, not Mexican. :)
