Easy way to make ham and beans and not have to wait all day for it! I have made this recipe to fit into my 5 qt electronic pressure cooker.

  1. Cut up onion, garlic and ham.
  2. Rinse beans and remove any that are discolored.
  3. Place all ingredients in pressure cooker with seasonings to taste.
  4. Turn on high pressure for 25 minutes. (If you have an electronic pressure cooker the meat setting is great for this recipe).

This is FABULOUS! And so easy! The first time I prepared it just as the recipe directed. But the beans were still a bit crunchy. So I fired up the cooker for another 25 minutes. PERFECT! I didn't add any additional spices or anything. (I did use our Christmas ham - no bone, just ham pieces - but the flavor was wonderful!)

I will make this again - and again!

I am a novice cook with a newly accquiered presser cooker. %u201DBasic%u201D was the key word to my following this reciepe. After reading the one review, and takeing thier advice, I did the reciepe and cooked under pressure 45min. The beans where aldente at best with no liquid left. I can only hope you will know what best to do..... at this time, I plan on adding water and cooking under pressure for another 15 min. Good Luck !
