Method:

Pressure Cooker

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1
ham hock (about 1 pound)
1 medium
onion, diced
2
garlic cloves, minced
1
bay leaf
6 c
dried black beans, picked over and rinsed (about 1 pound)
6 c
water
kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a 6-quart pressure cooker over medium-high heat, pour in 3 tablespoons oil.
2
Add the ham hock and onions and cook until the onions are wilted and the ham hock is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
3
Throw in the garlic and bay leaf and cook for 1 minute more.
4
Add the beans and give a good stir.
5
Pour in the water; add the remaining tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon of salt, and a couple of grindings of pepper.
6
Following the manufacturer's instructions, cover, lock the lid, and bring to high pressure. Lower heat to maintain pressure and start timing. Cook at high pressure for 25 minutes.
7
Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
8
Release the steam, again following the manufacturer's directions. If the beans are underdone, simmer them with the lid off until tender.
9
Remove bay leaf and discard.
10
Pick meat from ham hock and add to beans; discard the bone.
11
Taste and adjust seasoning.

Cook's note:
The oil prevents the beans from foaming and clogging the steam vent of the pressure cooker.
