This was good. I made it mostly like the recipe except I soaked my BEP first, and then rinsed and drained them, as I was not going to cook them for a few more hours and I didn't want them to sit in the soaking water for that long. That might have removed extra flavor...not sure. But, as many have said, this is a simple meal, and meant to be that way, so that being said, it was good! I also added celery and red pepper (I have no green ones), and used up some ham from my freezer instead of the hock, and was about 1/4 cup short on BEP. We love BEP's, so next time, I would definitely use about 2 cups instead. My 12 year old daughter ate 3 servings, so this is a keeper at my house. It is similar to another recipe we make, except that one has bacon, carrots, and actually calls for celery and green pepper. We serve it with rice (cooked separately) or corn bread. Over all, a good, comforting meal, and hoping the BEP's bring another good year for us! Thanks for sharing.
