Ham Hock And Beans

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 most recently have some time, I was searching on the internet a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, interesting thoughts, inspiring recipes that I’ve never tested before, to impress my family with. Looking for a while unfortunately could not discover lots of interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and easy treat by chance over Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delicious on its snapshot, that required immediate actions.

It was not difficult to imagine just how it is made, its taste and just how much my husband will probably love it. Actually, it is very easy to please him when it comes to cakes. Anyways, I visited the blog and then used the detailed instuctions that were combined with wonderful photos of the operation. It really makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take pics in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may usually have sticky hands so that i genuinely appreciate the effort and time she devote to make this blogpost .

Having said that I am encouraged to present my own recipes in the same way. Many thanks the thought.

I had been fine tuning the main mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can tell you it had been an incredible outcome. They enjoyed the flavour, the overall look and loved getting a sweet such as this in the middle of a hectic week. They ultimately asked for even more, more and more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I am gonna twin the quantity .

This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Ham Hock And Beans 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.
