Southern Ham and Brown Beans



Ingredients :

  • 1 pound dry pinto beans
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 large
  • meaty ham hock
  • 1 large onion
  • chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Place the beans and water in a large stockpot. Add the ham hock, onion and garlic. Season with chili powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Cover, and remove from heat. Let stand for one hour.
  • Return the pot to the heat, and bring to a boil once again. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for at least 3 hours to blend flavors. The longer you simmer, the thicker the broth will become. I like to cook mine for about 6 hours.
  • Remove the ham hock from the broth, and let cool. Remove the meat from the bone, and return the meat to the stockpot, discarding the bone. Adjust seasonings to taste.
