I was under doctor's orders to reduce the amount sodium I was eating, but I just couldn't part with some of my favorite foods. After many experiments I came up with this potluck favorite—now everyone's happy! —Sherrel Hendrix, Arkadelphia, Arkansas

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) dried great northern beans
  • 2 smoked ham hocks (about 1/2 pound each)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder, divided
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce, optional

Directions

Rinse and sort beans; soak according to package directions. Drain and rinse beans, discarding liquid.
In a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, combine beans, ham hocks, water, onion, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon onion powder. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 30 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions.
Remove ham hocks; cool slightly. Cut meat into small cubes, discarding bones; return meat to pressure cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, remaining garlic powder, remaining onion powder and, if desired, pepper sauce. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 3 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions. Yield: 12 servings (1/2 cup each).

Test Kitchen tips
  • Using hot sauce to flavor foods can be a smart alternative to salt, but make sure you check the nutrition labels. We recommend Tabasco sauce. It has only 26 mg of sodium per 5-7 drops.

    "These were great. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. I soaked my beans overnight and the cooking time in my instant pot was just as the recipe called for. I prefer my beans slightly sweeter, so I stirred a little extra brown sugar in my dish, but the rest of the family ate it without any extra sugar."
