I was at a friends house one night to help with a political rally. For helping him, he fed us all this dish. I was so blown away by how simple it was and yet soooo tasty that I decided to work on my own version of it (his used canned greenbeans and canned white potatoes) This was the result.

How to Make Ham, Potato, & Green Bean Stew


  1. In stock pot ( or crock pot ) place ham and water and bring to a boil. Boil for an hour or till meat starts to come off the bone, then remove ham from the pot to take meat off the bone. When cool enough to handle, cut ham into bite sized pieces
  2. Sautee the onion in about a tbsp of oil and then add to boiling ham stock in the crock pot along with the greenbeans and cook just till they're tender but still crisp.
  3. Add ham back to the crock pot and add potatoes and seasonings, turn heat down to low and simmer till potatoes are fork tender.
  4. Tastes great with a side salad and some crusty french bread
