How to Make 4-Ingredients Crock Pot Great Northern Beans

Step 2: Place the beans into the crockpot, season with salt and pepper. Then, add the ham shanks hocks or chopped ham (chopped them into big chunks). Add in water enough to cover the beans by 2 inches (around 6 to 8 cups of water).

Step 3: Cover the crockpot and cook in high heat for the first 2 hours and in low heat for the remaining time. Cook for 4 to 5 hours until the beans are tender.

Step 4: After the beans are soft, remove the ham shanks or hocks and pull off the meat.

Step 6: Once done, pour yourself some in a bowl and enjoy!
