Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This bean stew is hearty and will warm you up on a cold night. Plus, it's a great way to use leftover ham. I only added salt and pepper as seasoning. The ham and veggies add plenty of flavor. Grab some crusty bread and you have a great dinner!

Ingredients

1 pkg
dried navy beans, 1 lb. bag
1
ham hock or ham bone
leftover ham pieces (the more the better!)
1 large
onion, chopped
3
russet potatoes, cut into chunks
1
small head of cabbage, roughly chopped
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
your favorite seasonings, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Follow directions on bean package for water amount. Cook beans, onions and ham hock for 1 hour.
2
Then, add extra ham chunks, potatoes, and cabbage (more water may be needed). Season to taste. Simmer for hours until potatoes and cabbage cooked.
