Season your pork and fry it in half the oil in a pan, until browned


Remove pork from pan, then add the remaining oil and fry the onion, peppers, garlic and add a pinch of salt. Do this until they are all soft, usually it takes ten minutes


Transfer to slow cooker, and add the spices and tomato puree and cook for a few minutes. When ready, add the chopped tomatoes and 250ml of water


Add the pork, season and then leave to cook for desired time. Alternatively, place in an ordinary pan and simmer for two hours


Tip in the beans and simmer for another 30 minutes, by now the pork should be very tender
