Ham & Green Beans & Pa. Dutch Favorite One Pot Meal

This a Very Easy One Pot Pa. Dutch meal that is very common here in Lancaster County! Fresh or Frozen & even canned green beans with chunks of ham, potatoes with lots of broth. All cooked up in one pot & YES you could make it in the crock-pot!

1, 3 to 4 lbs Ham End OR Ham Hocks . I prefer the ham end, less waste!
Water to Cover.
Place ham in the water enough to cover & let simmer a good hour & 1/2. You want nice rich broth. Remove ham & set aside to cool.

Back to the broth add the following:
3 to 4 LBS Cleaned snapped fresh green beans , or frozen or canned beans
2 Large Onions chopped, large chop
8 to 10 peeled potatoes
Put all into  the broth & cook on a low simmer. When meat is cool enough to handle cut into nice size chunks & put that into the pot too. Cook until potatoes are tender & beans are soft about 1 hour. Serve with broth ladled over the serving! My Sour Cream, Cheddar, & Bacon Muffins are the perfect accompaniment for this meal! ENJOY a taste of Lancaster County!

TO MAKE I THE CROCK-POT place all in the pot & cook on low all day! Before serving remove the ham & cut into pieces & stir back into the beans & potatoes!
I tried adding carrots along with the potatoes in my Ham& Green Beans tonight & YUM so GOOD! I know I know it is not the TRADITIONAL way of making Ham & Green Beans but I do believe I will be doing my Ham & Green Beans WITH CARROTS from now on! It tasted so good & the carrots give this dish a nice pop of color!
