Dad's Meat and Beans for a crowd

5 lb beef or pork roast
2 lb black beans (I actually like to do one lb black and 1 lb pinto)
1 medium yellow onion
2-4 cloves garlic
1 t. Oregano
1-2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper

Sear meat in a hot oiled cast iron dutch oven or similar heavy pot, add onion and garlic. Add beans, spices and enough water to cover everything in about 1/4 inch of water. Cook at about 300 F for about 4 hours. I have found that if the cookware is tight enough it doesn't need extra water. If the lid is not a good fit it may need more water after an hour or two. Season to taste after beans have cooked. Enjoy with tortillas, limes, salsa and cilantro (unless you are like me and HATE cilantro!).
