Pork and Beans

I wanted to post this recipe because it is a great way to use up leftover pork roast. I had about 1/2 – 3/4 lb pork roast leftover from Thursday night’s Bacon Wrapped Pork Roast.

We have a Sunday night tradition in the summer to have dinner outside with Grandma. She brings part of the meal and we have the other part. We eat outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and each other’s company.

Here is the recipe from tonight’s pork and beans.

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (or maple syrup)
