Quick and Easy Feijoada

Hearkens back to the mission. Note that I’ve modified this recipe a bit for personal preference. At the end, thicken with a cornstarch slurry as needed. Optionally use creole seasoning or similar instead of salt to add some further spice. Goes great with some sriracha or other hot sauce too.
