Cooktop Cove: How to make Southern-style spicy brown beans
Southern-style brown beans, or pinto beans, are traditionally served with ham hock, but if purchasing and cooking an entire hock sounds slightly too intimidating or time-consuming, this version is for you! It’s simple and delivers a hearty southern meal every time.
Using canned beans instead of dried ones means no soaking overnight, and the shredded pork adds all the flavor and heartiness you’re after without any of the hassle. This recipe could also work in a slow-cooker, just be sure that it’s in a location safe from pets, partners, or roommates who might be tempted by the intoxicating aroma of savory pork and spicy brown beans.
