Slow Cooker Roast Pork and Black Bean Chili

I was inspired by Rachael Ray's recipe for her Roast Pork and Black Bean Chili.  This recipe is intended to use leftover roast pork and gravy from another one of her recipes, but I thought this soup sounded so good and I am always on the look out for a yummy pork recipe.  I actually made my own version of this in the slow cooker several months ago, and although I was really happy with how it turned out, I forgot to take a picture.  Go figure!  Well, I remembered this time and it was just as tasty!  And it's super easy, so what's not to like?

Slow Cooker Roast Pork and Black Bean Chili   (Jackie's version)

1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, diced
2 tablespoons chili pepper
1 tablespoon cumin
2 cups chicken stock
2 cans black beans, drained
2 pork steaks, about 3/4-1 pound (total)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Spray slow cooker pot with cooking spray and mix all ingredients together.  Set slow cooker to medium low or allow for about 6-8 hours to cook through.  Pork should be very tender.  Remove pork steaks and shred with two forks.  Mix the shredded pork back in the soup.  Season with additional salt or pepper if necessary.  Serve with cilantro, sour cream, and chipotle hot sauce for garnish.  I also served this with homemade cornbread on the side.  Yum!

I, too, am always on the lookout for pork recipes. This sounds like a winner to me. The crockpot is one of my favorite tools to use in the hot summers of AZ, so I will definitely be giving this a try!
