Smoked pork joint, sausages and butter beans stew

Ramona's Cuisine -


If you can't have don't like pork, try with beef sausages or chicken. I have cooked this with both and it is amazingly nice with both. Just make sure to add that magic paprika.
Use smoked paprika if you make with non smoked meats.

This recipe is a treat with no meat too!?
Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

How to Make Smoked pork joint, sausages and butter beans stew


  1. If you are cooking the dry beans, ideally is to soak those for anything between 4-12 hours. Overnight is best.
  2. Rinse well the beans and place in a pot with a teaspoon of salt and cook/boil covered for 30-40 minutes if soaked, longer if not soaked. I always recommend you see and follow pack instructions. Ideally is to change the first water, meaning that as soon as the beans begin to boil for the first time, drain those of that water completely, rinse with cold water and place again on fire to cook. If you chose to use the canned beans there is no need for any of the above but jump straight to step 4.
  3. While beans are cooking, peel wash and chop the onions and the carrot, wash the aubergine, pepper and celery and finely chop those too.
  4. In a deeper type pan or a pot placed on medium fire, put the sliced sausages and the onions. No need to add any oil as sausages will release some. Sufficient to cook with. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the pork joint carrot, aubergine and the pepper and cook for a further 5-7 minutes stirring consistently. Put the drained and semi-cooked beans or the canned ones and add some water (approx. 250 ml), cayenne pepper, salt, thyme, turmeric powder, bay leaves, black pepper and the tomato juice and paste. Allow to cook covered for about 20-30 minutes. Uncover for the last 10 minutes and cook on low fire.
  5. (Optional) Serve with some nice home made spelt flour bread and pickles.
