    1. 1
      Turn on the broiler.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in an extra-deep 12 inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, cut the pork chops into 1/2-inch cubes, adding them to the skillet as you cut.
    4. 4
      Slice the sausages into 1/4-inch circles, adding them as you cut.
    5. 5
      Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
    6. 6
      Peel and coarsely chop the onion, adding it to the skillet as you chop.
    7. 7
      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.
    8. 8
      (Reduce the heat to medium if the pork seems about to burn.) Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans and set aside.
    9. 9
      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!
    10. 10
      (If you are really distracted, you can omit the bread crumbs and skip this step to prevent mishaps.) Set aside.
    11. 11
      Stir the beans into the pork mixture and simmer just long enough to mix well and heat through, about 2 minutes.
    12. 12
      Scatter the toasted crumbs on top and serve.

      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.

      This is a great recipe - have made it several times and even kids like it! I have made it with all sausage (mild Italian sausage works as well as kielbasa), with great reviews from the family! White kidney beans or great northern beans also work well.

      Very good and very quick as advertised. A bit on the sweet side but Dh liked it that way. Made the recipe as written except I substituted limas for the navy beans (cupboard was bare). Thanks, evewitch.
