Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 carrot, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 large smoked ham hock
  • 1/2 pound dried white beans, such as Great Northern or navy, soaked overnight and drained
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Sautéed Mustard Greens and Garlic Mayonnaise, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf and thyme and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the water, ham hock and drained beans and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Remove the ham hock from the stew and chop the meat; discard the bones, skin and gristle. Discard the bay leaf. Add the ham hock meat to the beans, season with salt and pepper and serve with Sautéed Mustard Greens and Garlic Mayonnaise.

Make Ahead

The stew can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
