or beans of your choice, dry
we used beef broth
sliced or diced
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 hours for dry soaked beans 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!
