Yanked Pork and Beans
By Jim Bailey, a.ka. "The Yankee Chef"

I developed this recipe with an "old time" mind. My ancestor is written as having
shared his meager supper with a Scotsman back in 1793, consisting of a "small
piece of pork and a parcel of beans." I took that and ran with it, so to speak. I
think you will find this modern approach to pork and beans to be delightfully
tasty. I serve these beans with grilled pork chops, but add whatever protein you
desire or simply enjoy them topped with some fried or poached eggs. Use can
use frozen or canned (drained) Lima beans.

1 (4-ounce) boneless pork chop
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 small onion, minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic in oil
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
8 ounces cooked Lima beans
1 cup whole kernel corn
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon each salt, oregano, basil, sugar and black pepper
Salt and black pepper to taste
Dice pork chop into very small pieces. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium
heat. Add pork, onion and garlic. Cook, while stirring frequently, until pork is
done and onions have softened, about 6-8 minutes. Add remainder of
ingredients, stirring to combine well. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes
to heat everything to temperature and to give the sauce a chance to thicken.
Remove from heat and season to taste with salt. Serve hot.

Makes about 4 sides
