You've surely heard of the dish Pork 'n' Beans, right? When I was kid, I remember having that a lot. Well, today, in our weekly What's Cookin'? segment presented by Kentucky Legend here on WBKR, our friend Kelly Bland, from the UK Cooperative Extension Office here in Daviess County, is sharing a fun twist on that recipe. We're adding some greens to the pork and the beans. Here's how to make Pork with Greens and Beans!
