Recipe by STK FD WIFE
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Pour 2 cans of beans with their liquid into a 2-quart saucepan.
  • Add smoked ham hock and water.
  • Simmer over medium heat for 1 hour until the meat starts to loosen from the bone.
  • Remove from heat and cool until the hock is cool enough so the meat may be removed from the bone.
  • Place the meat, beans and liquid in a food processor.
  • To the mixture add onion powder, garlic salt, red pepper, salt, and lard.
  • Process for only 4 seconds.
  • Beans should be chopped and liquid thick.
  • Add the third can of beans that have been drained of their liquid.
  • Process just for a second or two; you want these beans to remain almost whole.
  • Pour bean mixture back into to pan and cook slowly on low heat stirring often until ready to serve.
  • Serve over rice.
