Ingredients:  
1 pound dry black beans
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 pound pork shoulder, cut into chunks
2 large onions, sliced
1 head of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 pound brisket, cut into chunks
1/2 pound chorizo or Italian sausage
1 pound linguica or kielbasa
1 smoked ham hock
3-4 bay leaves
Water
14.5 ounce can of Rotel™ tomatoes
Salt
Green onions, chopper, for garnish

Directions:
Directions:
Pour boiling water over the black beans and let them sit while you prepare the rest of the stew. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and brown the pork shoulder. When the meat has browned, remove the pork from the pot, set aside. Add the onions to the pot. Brown them, stirring occasionally, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Sprinkle a little salt over the onions and add the garlic. Stir well and sauté 2 more minutes. Add back the pork shoulder and the other meats with enough water to cover. Add the bay leaves, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for 1 hour. Drain the black beans from their soaking liquid and add them to the stew. Simmer gently, covered, until the beans are tender, about an hour. Add the tomatoes, stir well and taste for salt. Simmer this, uncovered, until the meat begins to fall off the ham hock, which will probably take an hour more. Remove the meat from the ham hock and add back to the pot. Stir. Serve in bowls or over white rice. Sprinkled with green onions.

Personal Notes:
When Gigi summons the courage to invite my side of the family over for dinner, she likes me to fix something that can be eaten outside with plastic spoons on paper plates or in plastic bowls. D'Amour's/Schaefer's aren't the Dining-Room-Lenox-Fine-China types. This dish is perfect for us. It's made in one pot and can be ladled into bowls or over top of some white rice. It's served with beer, Tabasco and crusty bread. Three musts when D'Amour's gather. Did I mention we need beer?

Daughter Allison's Oft Repeated Simpson Quote: Barney to Homer Simpson, "Hey Homer, I'm worried about the beer supply. After this case, and the other case, there's only one case left."
