You know those dinners that simmer for hours and make the whole house smell amazing? The ones that cause people to say “What are you cooking?!” the second they walk in the door? This slow cooker ham, green beans and potatoes recipe is one of those.
I grew up near the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, where this creatively named recipe (I dare you to guess what’s in it!) was a mainstay. Ham, green beans, and potatoes (or as I lovingly refer to it—HGP) was one of my favorite childhood meals. Any time I’d come home from school to smell it wafting through the house, I felt like all was well with the world.
It wasn’t until I headed west that I realized this gem of a dish is not a staple in every part of the country. To help correct that, I am sharing this simple and delicious meal with you all. This could not be any easier to make, and I promise your family will love you when you serve it, especially when the weather starts to cool down in the coming months.
This easy one-pot recipe cooks up in one big crockpot (or soup pot), and it only requires three ingredients. The title pretty much gives it away, right?
2 lb fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
1 large onion, chopped
3 ham hocks
1 1⁄2 lb new potato, quartered
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tbsp chicken bouillon, granules
1 ground black pepper, to taste
