Speedy Pork Cassoulet

Speedy Pork CassouletThis cassoulet, a hearty French white bean and meat stew, offers a perfect harmony of Southwestern flavors. This 'quickie' version can be fixed for a weeknight supper. Serve with crusty French rolls and salad greens tossed with a garlic vinaigrette.

3 boneless pork chops, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 (15-ounce) cans great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Cooking Directions:
