  • Rinse and pick through beans, discarding any misshapen beans or debris. Place beans in large bowl. Add enough water to cover beans by at least 2 inches. Let stand overnight.
  • Drain beans, discarding soaking liquid; set beans aside. Cook bacon in Dutch oven or deep large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon, reserving 2 Tbsp. drippings in pan. Drain bacon on paper towels. Meanwhile, add onions, peppers and garlic to reserved drippings; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender.
  • Return bacon to pan with beans, ham hock, broth, 2 Tbsp. parsley, bay leaf and seasonings. Bring to boil; simmer on low heat 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until beans are tender and liquid is thickened, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook rice as directed on package during the last 30 min. of the bean cooking time.
  • Remove ham hock and bay leaf; discard bay leaf. Shred meat from ham hock; discard bone and any fat. Stir meat into bean mixture. Serve over rice; top with remaining parsley.

Note

Cool any leftovers, then refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months. Reheat before serving.

Note

If too much liquid cooks off from the beans, add up to 1 cup additional water to prevent the beans from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

    Excellent flavor. This is one of my family's go-to meals. It cooks perfect everytime. It's well seasoned and simple to make. I've added shredded chicken, summer sausages, ham... all successful flavor profiles.
