  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed salt pork
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  2. Place salt pork in Dutch oven and cook until evenly browned; remove salt pork, reserving drippings. Saute onion and garlic in reserved drippings until tender. Add beans, salt pork, salt, and red pepper flakes; cover with water and cook over low heat for 2 hours or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Garnish with parsley.
