Pintos-N-Ham Hock

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Growing up my momma made pinto beans 2x a week. This is how she showed me.

 

 

Get a SS pot add the hock and onions. Cover hock with water and bring water to a broil for 2 hours. Pull the hock and take meat off cut into chunks. Add back to water.

 

Hock and onions ready to cook.

Sort the dry beans 1lb. Take out any rocks or ugly color or bad bad beans.

Cut the hock meat down and add to water. Keep a pan of hot water on the stove to add to beans when liquid gets low. You want to keep about 1" of liquid over the cooking beans.

 

Take the dry beans, place in container and rinse with cold water 3x. This will take off the dirt and any bean skin.

 

Add dry beans to hock water.

Simmer uncovered from 4-6 hours or until beans are fork tender. You can add cumin, garlic, black pepper at any time but NO SALT YET.

It must be soup day. Our crock pot has 2 ham bones & all the fixin's for bean & pasta soup. Should be ready by dinner. The house sure smells great. Looking forward to see how yours turns out. I'm sure excellent as always Nepas!

The last 15 mins of cooking take a cup of beans out with some broth and put em on a plate.

Now take a fork and smush em up some. After replace back into the pot. This will thicken the beans. At this point go ahead and add salt or whatever else you like. Cook for the 15 mins.
