I was really disappointed with this recipe. I'm generally a pretty good cook, and I followed this recipe closely. It turned out bland and flavorless.
I loved this recipe! I used one ham hock and 3 or 4 thick slices of ham. It turned out really well. The whole family enjoyed this recipe.
I haven'/t made it yet but I am intrigued by the recipe. It says black bean stew but the picture shows a dish made with red beans, which is what I will use, There is no way there could be any color in the stew other than black (the ham and onions, everything will be black like the beans.) I love the idea about the citrius with the beans and ham hocks. I will write a proper review after I make it.
This is very deceptive.. Once you have finished the process, there is literally not a single piece of ham on the hock. If you're looking for a stew with shredded ham in it, as pictured, you'll have to add meat somewhere else!!
