DIRECTIONS

  • PREPARE THE BEANS: In a large saucepan, cover the beans with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • In a medium skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeño and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 7 minutes.
  • Add to the beans, along with the tomato, oregano and enough water to cover. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until the beans are tender, about 2 hours longer, replenishing the water if necessary.
  • MEANWHILE, COOK THE PORK: Preheat the oven to 300. In a small enameled cast-iron casserole, combine the broth with the garlic, onion, habanero and serrano chiles, bay leaf, cumin and » teaspoon each of salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Season the pork loin with salt and pepper and add it to the casserole.
  • Cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour, turning the pork once, until tender. Transfer the pork to a plate and cover with plastic wrap until cool enough to handle.
  • Remove the bay leaf. Shred the pork into strips and stir into the broth. Season with salt. Fill the tortillas with pork and serve with the black beans and salsa.
