Tuscan Pork and Beans

Wanted to come up with something a little different for the challenge cook. 

 

Tuscan Pork and Beans - it was a crock pot recipe but a Dutch Oven in a kamado is really just a wood fired crock pot.

No soaking the beans for this recipe. Rinsed the beans then into the Dutch Oven.

Ground up some fennel seeds.

Added some fresh chopped rosemary (from my rosemary bush), rubbed sage, garlic paste, fresh cracked white pepper and fresh ground Himalayan pink salt.

Added some extra virgin olive oil and ground it altogether into a paste.

Added chicken stock, a couple of bay leaves and the pork chunk that was rubbed with the paste.

Indirect in the 19" Komodo Kamado at 275*.this is about 7 hours into the cook. It needs a bit more chicken stock.

While that was going on I figured we needed some nice bread. My awesome Ciabatta pan in the Primo Oval Jr.

After 10 hours (as planned) dinner was served.

Fantastic looking meal ck! And that fresh bread off your Primo Junior just throws it over the top.

great looking cook @ckreef     I agree with @Ron5850  the bread certainly didn't hurt.   nice job

 

Thanks guys the meal came out way better than I thought it would.

 

I love my Emile Henry ceramic Ciabatta bread pan. The red glaze is super easy to clean even after being in the grill. The Emile Henry pans are not cheap but would definitely buy it again.

 

I'm slowly perfecting the bread pan dough process and the Oval Jr is becoming my goto bread oven.
