This was super easy and turned out pretty good. I did use a ham hock instead of the pork jowl as the recipe submitter mentioned. I think this recipe could have used some onion and garlic. I ende...
Great! Just like Granny's. To the person who said you don't add sugar...yes, you do. A little bit of sugar brings out all the other flavors.
These were delicious! Taste just like the beans my grannie used to cook.
