Pinto beans bacon cornbread and pickled onions


°2 lb Ham Hooks

°1 lb. bento bento

°3 garlic cloves

°1 32 ounce can chicken broth (low sodium)

°1 tablespoon of butter!!

°1 medium onion chopped!!

°1 stalk chopped celery!!

°1/2 chopped green pepper!!

°1/2 teaspoon cumin!!

°1 teaspoon of paprika!!

°1/2 teaspoon black pepper!!

°1 teaspoon dried parsley and thyme!! 1 vegetable bouillon cube!!

*Preparation :

Add washed pork shanks to a pot with 8 cups of bubbling water for two hours. After 2 hours of cleaning the beans, add to the pot along with 32 ounces of the minced chicken stock, garlic, and the rest of the above flavors !! 

Cook for 2 1/2 hours or until the peas are tender and juicy!! Note: I cooked mine on the stovetop for 4 1/2 hours and the meat would turn into pieces, if your question as to why the peas didn’t start cooking before is assuming you cook the peas for 4 hours on the stove it becomes mush. 

So I added it halfway through to keep it strong and rich.
