  1. Wash pinto beans thoroughly and place in a large stockpot. Add 4 quarts water, pork jowl, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer; cook until beans are tender and tasty, 3 to 4 hours. Add water throughout cooking as needed; do not let the beans cook dry.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • These beans can also be prepared in a slow cooker. Add all ingredients and set on High. They'll be ready to eat at suppertime.
  • Use 1 ham hock instead of the pork jowl if preferred.
