  • If using dry beans put them in a bowl with 4 cups of water and leave them overnight to soak. (can use drained canned beans but I think dry turns out better)
  • Slice or dice your onion.
  • Put your ham hock in the center of your slow cooker. Drain your soaked beans and pour those around your ham hock.
  • Separate pieces of cut onion and sprinkle around ham hock on top of beans.
  • Sprinkle minced garlic and seasonings around, on top of onions. Then pour your broth into your crockpot and close your lid.
  • Set on low for 6 - 8 hours for dry soaked beans (until they're tender) or 2-3 hours for drained canned beans (depending on how soft you want them).
  • After 6 hours (7 if you want beans softer), remove bones from ham hock and shred ham in pot (it will fall apart when you use tongs on it.
  • Stir and serve!
