This didn't turn out very soupy at all, but it's a nice, meaty, full-flavored bean dish. The directions don't say when to add the green pepper, so we threw it in with the onions and browning hamburger. We also cut up the hamhock after boiling it with the beans and mixed this meat in at the baking stage. This recipe makes a great deal; we filled up an 8x8 pan and a 9x13 pan.
