Bean and Ham Hock Stew

The way the do it sounds interesting but I would rather do a hearty navy bean soup....which is pretty much what is in the pic.  And use smoked ham hocks.

"Leftover ham," you say. What is that?

I understand "leftover ham".

I don't understand the need to do anything with it other than eat it cold for a snack the next day.

Ham is kind of like pizza that way, good hot or cold.

Indeed!  And steak, and especially ribs.

I get it... "leftover steak, what is that?"  Well... make extra!

Leftover steak is the best way to make french dip. Leftover ham is the best way to make fried rice.

Many hamhocks are not the greatest for eating but you need them for flavor. Add the ham near the end of the cooking of the beans for the actual eating.

My dad makes a nice ham and bean soup with leftover ham from Christmas, Easter, etc. It actually is awesome.

Add it to your halushki

Ham is better than bacon, and way better than sausage, for this.  Sacrilege, but it's true, haluski is better for cleaner flavors rather than highly spiced sausage or ham.

What you must to do for good haluski is carmelize the onions real good, low and slow until nice and bronzed, then turn up heat and add cabbage, noodles, meat if any, a little salt and a lot of pepper.

You don't really even need any ham, just the bone. There is usually enough meat left on the bone for a good bean soup.

split pea soup is on my menu this week. i use a ham shank cause it has lots more meat on it than hocks do.
for a large oval crockpot full.
2 lbs split peas, sorted.
1 white onion, cut up
4 large carrots, peeled, quartered, and diced.
1 large ham shank, have the butcher cut it into 3-4 peices.
1 tsp pizza pepper.
1 tsp black pepper.

throw the peas in first, hocks second, everything else third. add warm water to cover by half an inch.

lid on, crock on high, let it go for six hours. meat should fall off shank.

no salt added as the shank has plenty of salt by itself.

you can add extra ham to it if you have it, but this soup turns out super tasty with just the ingredients mentioned, and takes no more than ten minutes to toss together in the morning, and its hot and ready when you get home. ill set up the bread machine so theres a fresh hot loaf of french bread to soak up the soup...

My folks always make navy beans and ham for Thanksgiving. My mom was about to throw out the leftovers after a day, "NO"
threw the beans and ham from the Tupperware into the blender, then the mix went into a skillet with (lots of) butter and garlic.

Refried ham and beans as a taco filling with whatever else is now something I need more of in my life.

Seriously, if you have the mythical creature known as "leftover haamm" (think Manuel-Fawlty Towers)... how is this a problem? Y
ou don't know how to eat ham or incorporate it into 10 easy dishes?
No?

THEN GET THE FARK OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

Bones for soup
Meat for toasted ham and cheese sandwiches, or fried ham with eggs.

First, throwing out leftover beans after only one day is insane. Probably one of the easiest leftover meals ever. Second, making refried beans out of them is genious. That is an awesome way to stretch them.

Why? Why would she do such a thing? Not only is it still perfectly good to eat, it might even be better the next day.
Not trying to rip on your mom, but I just don't comprehend people with that sort of mentality.

dude, I too was thinking the same exact thing earlier about Axeofjudgement's mom (no, not that, you preverts!) - it's not even that I did grow up dirt-poor, only that I simply cannot comprehend wasting food.

my wife's parents have the same awful habits. latest (non-food) example: her parents'd ordered a new patio umbrella, which arrived damaged. my wife did the usual hokey-pokey with amazon for them, and a new one was being sent out. meanwhile? we were away for ~3 days and her mom decided it was too much trouble and threw out the broken one. and you ask why because? oh, it was taking up space! what space??!? she could have left it on their patio (tsk tsk nah too unsightly the neighbors would mention!) or put it in their garage or basement.

result? they paid like 200 dollars for 1(one) $100 umbrella. because her mom CBA to wait a day or two for us to get a return-label for the first one.

her parents love throwing out perfectly edible food like there's no tomorrow, no seriously, it literally seems to me like it's one of their all-time favorite hobbies? I just... it makes me all [jackiechan.gif]

/sorries-not-sorries, this kinda stuff really bugs me
