Here's a recipe from my friend, Valerie Loosen Coleman, and it's delicious, as are all the recipes I post. Anyway, I've made it quite a few times and once even made it while my Mama was visiting. She loved it so much that the last time I visited her she had requested I make it while I was there but somehow we got busy (she loved to stay on the go) and I never had a chance. I've thought of that often since losing her and so it had been a while since I made this so I finally made it again just recently. Wish you were here Mama!
Now, as you can tell from my pictures, I added black beans to mine. Being lazy ... instead of cooking them on the side. Not so sure that was a good idea ... Oh it tasted just fine but the beans seemed to take up all the moisture in the meat so I wouldn't advise it. This recipe is GREAT just the way it is. Thanks Valerie!
