Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:8 hours
Total Time:8 hours 15 minutes
1 ham hock
1 small onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 lbs (1 bag) dried black beans
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
4–6 cups of water
Wrap and tie the ham hock in cheese cloth and twine. This is so the hock doesn’t disintegrate into the beans (it leaves pieces of bone in the beans…gross).
Dump all of the ingredients into a Crockpot (6-8 quart). Make sure the water covering everything so the beans do not dry out. Cook on high heat for 8 hours.
Unwrap the ham hock, and add any meat from the hock back into the beans. That’s the good stuff!
