How to Make Hearty Pork & Kale Soup


  1. Season the pork roast with salt. Add a little oil to a very large pot. Brown the roast on both sides.
    Mix the next 13 ingredients together and pour over the roast. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low place a lid on the pot and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours stirring occasionally and adding water if needed. Once the meat begins to fall apart remove it from the pot and shred it into small pieces. Remove the bay leaves and discard.
  2. Bring the soup back to a boil and add the pasta. Cook 15 minutes. Stir in the kale, mushroom, black beans, and corn. Cook another 15 minutes. Season with salt if needed.
