How to make it

  • Boil ham-hocks in enough water to cover on high heat for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Add all seasonings except hot sauce and onion.
  • Continue boiling for 20 minutes.
  • Add pinto beans and adjust water to cover if needed, hot sauce, and onion.
  • Boil on medium heat for 2 hours until beans are done to taste.
  • Note: To speed up cooking of beans and reduce the gas beans produce, soak beans in cold water overnight or bring to a boil; turn off the heat and let sit for 1 hour.
