“I make this dish often; I have never really measured the ingredients, but can give you a reasonable approximation. Note: Freeze leftover cooking liquid, and then add to bean soup, ham or cabbage dishes, or use to cook dumplings in. It’s delicious!”
You know those dinners that simmer for hours and make the whole house smell amazing? The ones that cause people to say “What are you cooking?!” the second they walk in the door? This slow cooker ham, green beans and potatoes recipe is one of those.
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
- 2 lb fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 ham hocks
- 1 1⁄2 lb new potato, quartered
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- 1 tbsp chicken bouillon, granules
- 1 ground black pepper, to taste
How to make it:
Halve beans if they are large, place in a slow cooker with water to barely cover and add onion and ham hocks. Cover and cook on High until simmering. Reduce heat to Low and cook for 2 to 3 hours or until beans are crisp but not done.
Add potatoes and cook for another 45 minutes. While potatoes are cooking, remove ham hocks from slow cooker and remove meat from bones. Chop or shred meat and return to slow cooker. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, bouillon, and pepper. Cook until potatoes are done, then adjust seasoning to taste.
To serve, use a slotted spoon to put beans, potatoes, and ham into a serving dish with a little broth.
