This is one of my favorite things to make with fresh green beans. It is so yummy and comforting. Its ham, green beans, onions, and potatoes. I add extra ham for my husband (he doesn't eat the green beans) but will eat everything else. I only make this in the summer and fall. Its more delicious when you have all fresh ingredients (like in the summer), it just doesn't taste the same when you make it other times of the year.
6 medium red skin potatoes washed and cut into 2" chunks
1 lb green beans washed, snapped and cut into 2 inch length
1 large sweet onion, chopped roughly
1 1/2 lb of peppered ham and/or bacon, chopped roughly into chunks
1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
How To Make:
Brown bacon with onion for 5-7 minutes. Add ham (if using both) and brown a little more. Add water, potatoes, and beans and allow to cook down. Simmer for 30+ minutes until fall is fork tender. Stir every 5-10 minutes. Do not allow water to evaporate. Serve with cornbread.
Now, what to make with my peas...
