One pot ham and potaotes

One of the dishes we had almost every week growing up was a big pot of ham, potatoes and green beans. Mom started by cutting up potatoes and boiling them. Then went it some green beans and a ham steak and it was seasoned with salt and pepper.

During one of our recent snowstorms I got going on one of my cooking marathons and had a taste for mom's ham, potatoes and green beans. Mom usually used canned green beans and I was out, so I substituted peas. Also, I didn't use a ham steak. I'd made a big ham just after Christmas and I filled two containers with ham that I'd cut up so it would be ready to use in a dish. So, I had some ham already cut up and I just pulled it from the freezer and threw it in.


6 Russet potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 can beans or peas
about 8 oz. of cut up ham
Fresh chopped parsley

Put potatoes in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and add salt and pepper. Continue boiling for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Reduce to simmer and add veggies and ham. Simmer for about 5 more minutes or until heated throughout. Garnish with parsley and add more salt and pepper if desired.
