  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix beans, onions, bell pepper, Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1 teaspoon of the salt in slow cooker.
  • 2
    Rub pork loin with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, then rub in remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in hot skillet 3 to 5 minutes on both large flat sides or until browned. Transfer to slow cooker. Pour tomatoes over pork. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 to 4 hours or until pork is cooked through (145°F in centre).
  • 3
    Transfer pork to cutting board; let stand until cool enough to handle. Stir bean mixture in slow cooker; using slotted spoon, transfer to serving platter. Cut pork into 8 slices; place on top of bean mixture on platter, then top with mozzarella cheese. Cover platter with foil 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove foil; top with basil.

Expert Tips

  • Pork loin roasts often come with a thin layer of fat on one side. Trim it off before cooking, or ask your butcher to remove it for you.
  • The bean mixture in the slow cooker will be brothy. The broth is very flavourful, but if you prefer less liquid, use a colander to drain the bean mixture instead of a slotted spoon.
