Ham Hocks and Black Eyed Peas are a New Year's Day tradition in the Southern US. Easy pressure cooker instructions.
The no soak method: you can cook dry beans in the pressure cooker if you want to skip the soaking stage. Read the important note in step 6.
With a slotted spoon, remove ham bones, leaves and peel from liquid. Discard leaves and peel. Set bones aside to cool.
Add remaining ingredients to pressure cooker. Bring back to high pressure and cook for 10 minutes. Do a quick release of the steam. If beans are not as soft as you'd like, add some more water and finishing cooking on high heat.
NO SOAK METHOD: If you did not presoak the dried beans, turn the cooker off and wait another 10 minutes before releasing the remaining pressure.
NOTE! Pressure cooking times are not exact. Variations can be expected because of altitude, type of pressure cooker used, starting temperature of ingredients, etc.
