This is green bean heaven! We love the combination of ham and green beans. Adding onions and garlic and cooking them in a small amount of liquid and butter is sensational. The only thing I would do different, is to serve this as a main course and the only course !!! Thanks, Inez.
This was so easy to make, yet very elagant to serve at a formal dinner. The only change, I used frozen green beans. I will be making this alot.
My family rates this six thumbs up! I used bacon instead of ham and added some extra black pepper before serving. Delicious. I kept it simmering for an extra hour by adding more water when it needed it. Thanks for posting this keeper.
