Pork Roast with Navy Beans

My friend makes this in the oven and I have adapted it to the crockpot. Absolutely delish!

Spray crockpot with non stick spray. Take one bag of Navy Beans and remove debris, rocks and beans that do not look good. Rinse off and put in crockpot.

Pork Roast washed and seasoned liberally with-
Lawry's season salt
Cajun Seasoning
Garlic salt or powder
(or you can use whatever seasonings you like that go with navy beans)

Place pork roast on top of beans. Add water till crockpot is about 3\4 full. Place lid on crockpot and cook on low 7-9 hours or on high about 5 hours. (You might have to watch to make sure beans have enough liquid from roast and the water you added so they can fully expand and cook)

When beans and roast is done, pull out roast using a large spoon and spatula to place roast in glass 13by9. Take out most of the liquid from crock, leaving just enough for beans to have their own juice. Add salt to taste. Added salt will depend on how salty your pork roast was seasoned so use caution and taste as you season. Sometimes I also use one package of Sazon (puerto rican seasoning) Pour beans around roast. Serve with rice and cornbread.

*note- if you want your roast browned you can broil it for a few minutes. I don't really think it will need it tho.
