This is a meal in itself. My family likes this with a hot skillet of buttermilk cornbread or it goes really good with my Mexican cornbread recipe. This is a great meal for a cold winters night. Hope you enjoy!!!
In a large heavy cooking pot , cover beans with water (at least 2 or more inches above beans and pork chops). Add all the seasonings and bring to a rolling boil , reduce heat and cook till beans are tender , making sure to keep enough water not to let boil dry. Sometimes they will cook in 2 hours and the next time it may take hours ,just keep a watch on them , checking water often.
