    PanNan's Note:

    This is not your typical pot roast. It's a spicy (can be adjusted to your liking) and hearty dish. My husband loves it, but he doesn't know it's pretty low in fat and calories. It's very easy, but takes some time - start it about 3 - 4 hours before serving. We often keep it warm in the crockpot and serve it at tailgate parties with hot tortillas.

      My family loved this. It's easy and tastes great. It was absolutely delicious- an authentic black beans and pork dish. Great with fresh tortillas or with rice. I'll definitely be making it again and again.

      Fantastic! Other than my roast being a bit larger than called for, I followed the recipe exactly, right down to the Shiner Bock. :) I used the original Rotel tomatoes, but next time may try the extra hot version. We really enjoyed this, Nan ---thanks for sharing the recipe!
