    Gatorbek's Note:

    The cumin, lime, and cilantro combined with the kick of red pepper makes this a great, Cuban-style dish. Serve with some crusty bread, and you're good to go!

      This was wonderful! I did this as an OAMC meal. I dumped all the ingredients for the black beans in a large freezer bag and sealed it, then did the same for the pork. I shook it to coat and then squeezed all the air out. I put the pork, black beans and the yellow rice into a 3rd large freezer bag, printed your recipe then froze it. I thawed it overnight in the fridge and then followed directions. Awesome!

      WOW - FANTASTIC! And quick & easy!! The spice combo for the pork was perfect. With many dishes, I find the meat to be on the mild side unless you make some changes. This recipe hit it!! BTW, Cassava bread was a perfect match. Thanks for posting it!
