      My mom would put a pot of these beans on in the morning on wash day (she used lard). Everyone who walked past the stove had to stir the beans. I make these same beans often, but I use one smoked ham hock. Good amount of soupy broth. No, these are not cowboy beans with peppers etc... Just good southern pintos! Good with fried pork chops - now your talking.

      These beans were really something different than what I am used to eating but I really liked them. I used dried pinto beans and used a pressure cooker to speed up the process ( 1 1/4 hr at 10 lbs pressure). Served this recipe with corn bread and buttermilk. Tasty! Thanks for posting, JimB. =)

      Love pinto beans, and the beans turned out just great without soaking!! I did add additional water, a couple of times during cooking, because I was afraid the beans would burn. The pork I used was the last remains of a cure 81 ham. Tasted great! Thanks, JimB427 for posting this down home recipe. Made for Cooking From The Pantry Challenge Game
