Soup beans are dried pinto beans that are soaked overnight in water and then slow simmered, or in our case pressure cooked, with a ham hock and seasonings.
The answer to that depends on your personal goals with a ketogenic diet. Since beans are a legume, diets like keto, paleo, and Whole30 stay away from them.
Ham hocks (bones) are full of natural collagen that break down and release into the soup when cooking.
Traditional soup beans would need to cook low and slow all day in order to yield a soft and flavorful bean but the Instant Pot gets the job done in just one hour!
Southern pinto beans with ham are seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin and cooked with a ham bone (ham hock) for even more flavor.
