Total Time 4 hours 10 minutes


  • 1x ham hock (I like to use the Bertocci triple smoked hocks) and 1x gypsy ham
  • 2x brown onions
  • 3 x cans of rinsed red kidney beans (its important to rinse the beans otherwise you will end up with severe gas pains!)
  • About 1L to 1.5L of water
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper


  • 1: Dice the gypsy ham and onion.
  • 2: Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and place on high.
  • 3: Ignore it for 4 hours or until the meat on the ham hock falls off.
  • 4: Remove the hock bone, leaving the meat in the slow cooker.
  • 5: Leave to simmer on low for a few hours.
  • Serve on a bed of rice with freshly chopped onion sprinkled on top and a dash of tabasco.
  • This is an old Creole recipe that my family has adapted. You can also add other spices, garlic and spicy sausage to it if you're after a traditional Creole flavour!
