  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • In crockpot add cleaned beans, onions, garlic and ham hock.
  • Cover with water or chicken stock and cook on medium for 6 hours.
  • At about the half way point the meat should come off the ham hock, if not let it cook a little longer until you can. Remove the ham hock from beans and let cool.
  • Remove the layer of fat from the ham hock and shred the meat into bite size pieces and return to the crockpot.
  • When beans are done add salt and pepper to taste and skim as much fat off the beans as possible.
