4-5 lbs pork shoulder
1 medium onion; chopped
Mexican spice rub (or combination chile powder and taco seasoning), ground cumin, salt, pepper, Dijon mustard, garlic powder
4 large red and/or yellow peppers chopped and seeded
2 additional onions, chopped
4 cans black beans, NOT drained
3 cans whole kernel corn, drained
2 cans (15 oz) diced tomatoes
Additional cumin, spice rub, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes
1 bunch cilantro, chopped, to taste
1 quart beef broth

Place first onion in bottom of large oven-proof casserole. Rub pork with spice rub, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and mustard.
Sear quickly on high heat, then add approximately one cup water and place casserole in oven. Roast at 275 for about 4 hours (until pork pulls away from bone easily). Take out of pot and cool.
Meanwhile, saute onions and peppers with cumin and Mexican spices until tender. Add beans, corn, tomatoes, and broth. Simmer.
Trim and cut pork into stew size pieces while vegetables are simmering. Add pork pieces and continue to simmer for approximately one hour. Adjust seasoning to taste. Add pepper flakes and cilantro at the end of cooking, stir gently.

Serve with/over rice if desired.
