Ham Hock And Beans Soup

Come across a bunch of ham hocks and have some spare time? Let’s make the most delicious pork dish ever or let’s make two at the same time!

As I lately have some time, I had been searching on the web the other day. Looking for new, exciting tips, inspiring meals that I’ve never tasted before, to treat my family with. Hunting for quite some time yet could not find too many interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this tempting and simple treat simply by chance at Suncakemom. It seemed so yummy on its photo, that called for rapid actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine how it is created, its taste and just how much my husband might enjoy it. Mind you, it is rather simple to keep happy the guy when it comes to desserts. Anyways, I got into the blog and then followed the step-by-step instuctions that were accompanied by wonderful images of the process. It really makes life faster and easier. I can imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take snap shots in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may ordinarily have sticky hands therefore i genuinely appreciate the time and energy she devote for making this blogpost .

That being said I am empowered to present my own, personal recipe in a similar way. Thanks for the concept.

I had been fine tuning the main mixture create it for the taste of my family. I have to mention it absolutely was a terrific success. They loved the taste, the structure and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the middle of a lively workweek. They ultimately requested more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I am likely to twin the volume .

This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Ham Hock In Soup.

Ham hock soup with beans

Pour oil into a pot and on high heat saute the diced onion, celery, carrots and salt until the onion gets a glassy / translucent look for about 3 -5 minutes.

Mix in the diced garlic, black pepper and the ham hocks. If we have quick cooking beans or any other legumes like lentils, we have to precook the ham hock now. Pour water into to the pot until the ham hocks are submerged, bring it to boil and on low heat simmer them for an hour.

Add beans, tomatoes and fill the pot up with water until all the ingredients are submerged.

Put the lid on and bring the water to boil then simmer until the beans are ready on low heat which could be anywhere between 60 – 120 minutes. Optionally, add more vegetables to the soup like broccoli, brussel sprouts 10 minutes before finishing the soup.
