    Serves: 4 

    • 1 whole pork fillet, cubed
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 4 tablespoons polenta
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 4 tablespoons beer
    • 1 (270g) jar salsa, such as Discovery

    • 1/2 (400g) tin black beans; drained and liquid reserved
    • handful chopped fresh coriander

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Season cubed pork with salt and pepper to taste. Place pork in a large plastic bag with the polenta. Shake well to coat.
    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Place the coated pork in the frying pan and sauté for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned.
    3. Reduce heat to medium. Pour in the beer, salsa, peaches and beans with 2 tablespoons reserved liquid. Stir well and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the coriander and serve.


    Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried. Tinned chickpeas could also work in this recipe.

    Simple and easy recipie to do and very tasty you can make it hot or mild to suit your taste buds  -  18 Oct 2015


    I made this last night for guests and everyone raved! Not being a beer drinker, I used low sodium chicken broth instead and used the entire can of black beans. I served this with orzo, a green salad and, as suggested, a nice red wine. Thanks, Alex. This is definitely a keeper!  -  11 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    So easy my husband didn't even screw it up! A taste we weren't expecting but enjoyed on the first bite and more by the last. The first time this was made we used a generic Japanese brand salsa that has no bite (live in Japan). The second time, we used an American salsa that gave the dish more of a sweet sour taste. Depending on your tastes, simple to fiddle with the salsa to tweak the flavour.  -  12 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
