Episode 311 - Hoe Down!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Tony Loschiavo of L-Eat Catering showed me how to offer up some down home hospitality with a heap of beans. He shared the secrets of his famous Molasses Beer Bean recipe and I'd like to share them with you!

  • 2 cups navy beans
  • 1 medium sized white onion
  • a few chili peppers
  • 1 bottle dark beer
  • 2 tbsps molasses
  • 1 smoked pork hock

Soak a bowl of navy beans overnight in water.
Heat onions and pork hock together in a medium saucepan.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Continue to heat on the cook top for a couple of hours.

The result: A smoky, sweet, beer-tasting beans extravaganza!
