Ham & String Beans
This recipe is a traditional Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. It's super easy, at least the way I make it! You can use a ham hock and cook that down, but I didn't have time and ham slices were on sale this week.
1 inch thick bone-in ham steak
1 lb green beans, trimmed
6 yukon gold potatoes, peeled & cubed
Fill a stock pot with water. Add the potatoes and green beans and salt water. Bring to a boil.
Remove the crust (is that what it's called?) around the edge of the ham steak and the bone. Cut into bite sized pieces. Once the potatoes are fork tender, turn down heat to low and add ham steak. Simmer until ham is warm. Season with fresh ground pepper and additional salt if necessary.
Serve with a little broth and hot rolls. YUM!
