Red Potatoes, Green Beans, & Ham: Home Cooking Favorites

Red Potatoes, Green Beans & Ham

Hi everybody :)

If I was asked what's was one of my favorite comfort foods, this  recipe would most definitely be among the top ten. It's an old childhood favorite. When I was little, my mom would make this and sometimes she would put a cheese sauce or slice cheese over the top to make it extra special. 

Although I'm cooking this in my Super Pot, it can be done over the stove top too.  A great dinner in under 30 minutes, try it, it may become one of your favorites also :)


Here is how it's done...

Red Potatoes, Green Beans & Ham


1 1/2 lbs. red potatoes, washed & diced ( about 5 medium potatoes)
1 lb frozen green beans
1 cup cubed fully cooked ham 
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil 
1 cup chicken stock or water 
Butter to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
Prepared Cheese Sauce or slice cheese, optional (I used Kraft Cheez Wiz)

In saucepan, (I used my Super Pot heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring  occasionally, until garlic is tender but not brown

Add green beans, potatoes, ham, and stock.  
 Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. 
 Add butter and seasonings. Serve with cheese sauce, if desired. 
BTW, this can also be made with white potatoes.

ENJOY! Come again...
