Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes
I love to make things like this. Just put everything in the pot and let it cook. It is so simple and just delicious. I had a ham bone leftover with quite a bit of ham on it, so I used it instead of ham hocks. This cooks for 4 to 4 1/2 hrs.
- 2 lbs. fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 ham hocks
- 1 1/2 lbs. new potatoes, quartered
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
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, and bouillon. 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.
