Pork and beans
Pork and beans is a culinary dish that uses beans and pork as its main ingredients. It is routinely purchased canned and reheated on a stove or in a microwave oven. Numerous variations exist from Fabada Asturiana to Olla podrida to American canned pork and beans. Although the time and place of the dish's invention is unclear, it was well established in the American diet by the mid-19th century. The 1832 cookbook The American Frugal Housewife lists only three ingredients for this dish: a quart of beans, a pound of salt pork, and pepper. According to the 1975 Better Homes and Garden Heritage Cookbook, canned pork and beans was the first convenience food.
