Basic Ham & Beans (Pressure Cooker)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by 1kmarcum

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.

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!
