I adapted this from Desperation Dinners. Yes, it really does only take 20 min. start to finish!

I love this as a quick, simplified cassoulet. I like to add carrots, celery, bell peppers so that it can be a one pot meal. It's easy to double for a group. You can change the meats to your liking if you want to use chicken instead of pork, or a combination. It's very versatile.
- 1⁄2 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 boneless center cut pork chops (about 3/8 in. thick, 1/2 lb. total)
- 8 ounces turkey kielbasa
- 1 large onion (for 1 c. chopped)
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon bottled garlic
- 3 bay leaves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 pinch ground cloves
- 2 (15 ounce) cans navy beans
- 1⁄4 cup plain breadcrumbs
Directions See How It's Made
- Turn on the broiler.
- Heat the oil in an extra-deep 12 inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Meanwhile, cut the pork chops into 1/2-inch cubes, adding them to the skillet as you cut.
- Slice the sausages into 1/4-inch circles, adding them as you cut.
- Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion, adding it to the skillet as you chop.
- Stir in the water, wine, ketchup, honey, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, black pepper, and cloves and cook until the pork cubes are no longer pink, about 4 minutes, stirring frequently.
- (Reduce the heat to medium if the pork seems about to burn.) Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans and set aside.
- Spread the bread crumbs evenly on a cookie sheet and toast under the broiler until crisp and light brown; leave the oven door cracked and don't walk away- they brown quickly!
- (If you are really distracted, you can omit the bread crumbs and skip this step to prevent mishaps.) Set aside.
- Stir the beans into the pork mixture and simmer just long enough to mix well and heat through, about 2 minutes.
- Scatter the toasted crumbs on top and serve.
