This makes more of a cassoulet than "Pork and Beans", but it's simple and makes enough for a small army. It's good for you, lots of fiber, lots of protein. And, most of all, it tastes pretty darned good. You could probably get by with using less canola oil, too, if you're using non-stick. You need a lot less in a non-stick pot than in a cast-iron dutch oven. You also want to cut the pork in about 1/4"-1/2" cubes. I prefer the Imagine Organic, Low Sodium Broth - 4% Sodium per serving rather than 25%. You could also toss it all in a crock pot and leave it for the day.

Recipe Ingredients for Low Carb Italian Pork and Beans

2 T. canola oil
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 T. minced garlic
2 T. Italian seasoning
1 lbs ground pork
2 c. chopped spinach
2 c. diced tomatoes
8 c. low sodium chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Low Carb Italian Pork and Beans

In a non-stick stock pot, place oil and allow to heat for 30 seconds - 1 minute. Saute onion, garlic and rosemary in the oil until the onions are soft. (Do not brown/burn the garlic! It will get bitter!) Add the pork, and allow the pork to cook/brown a bit. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer cook for 20-30 minutes.
