Smothered Green Beans

Posted by DmentD | Recipes | Sunday 9 September 2001 12:00 am

1 large onion (chopped)
Potatoes (red,idaho or gold) (cut)
6-8 cloves garlic (chopped)
1-2 LB ham (cubed)
3 LB green beans
2 TSP salt
¼ TSP pepper
½ LB bacon (optional)


Wash the beans and cut off the ends. If using bacon, cook it till it’s crisp and set aside. Saute the onion in 2 TSP olive oil or bacon drippings until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add the ham, and stirfry for about 5 minutes or until slightly braised. Add water to fill the pot to 2″, beans, bacon, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low heat until beans are to desired consistency – about 1 to 1½ hrs. Check for desired seasoning flavor half-way through cooking as you can’t effectively season beans or any vegetable after they’ve cooked). Maintain about 2″ of water in the pot at all times. Add the cut potatoes after beans are soft and cook until they are fork tender.
