This is one of the most famous Brazilian dishes, my mom makes with a crock pot, she uses special meats you can only find in Brazilian supermarkets. Not having time to drive almost an hour to pick up the meats, I created my version of it, which tastes as good as and added a new spin, cooked in the crock pot, fast and easy! I remove from crock pot and place it in cast iron skillet to bring a Brazilian flavor to the table!
1 bag of beans Pinto or Black (I use Goya)
1 chopped onion
2 chopped tomatoes
2 tablets of caldo de carne Knorr ( brand my mom uses in Brazil), found at the Hispanic isle) or any bouillon cubes
Pinch of Cumin and Black Pepper
1 package of Hormel Salted pork
3 slices of Bacon
1 mild sausage ( I use Italian) chopped
Water to cover the ingredients
Place on crockpot for slow cook for 5/6 hours, check, when beans are soft and cooked, it is ready, check salt, I don’t add salt, but if you like, add some at the end after tasting, because the pork already has salt.

Secreto: If you wish to make the authentic one, please purchase meats at a Brazilian market and cook in crock pot for over an hour or until beans are ready!
