How to Make Country Style Green Beans, Ham & New Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large soup pot add all ingredients except potatoes - heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil. You want to have enough liquid to just barely cover the beans. Reduce heat and simmer another 2 - 3 hours.
  • 2Check for seasoning and adjust as needed. If it tastes a little salty it's OK, the potatoes will soak some of that up. The beans should be very tender and beginning to fall apart.
  • 3Add the new potatoes and push them down into the beans so that they're covered with liquid. If more liquid is needed add more chicken stock or water.
  • 4Raise heat to medium and bring liquid to a boil - cover and boil for 20 minutes or until potatoes are done. Taste again and adjust seasoning as needed. Enjoy!
  • 5NOTES: The beer and the bacon grease make all the difference in the taste so don't leave that out.
