I call this poverty food - as you can grow most of it. We loved it. I used our own canned beans and canned caramelized onions. That helped speed up the progress. I couldn't find a ham hock so I used a ham steak that I added after the potatoes cooked. Thanks for a great dinner - I can't wait to make this when we have everything fresh.

Manly vegetables, bursting with flavor! I would halve the seasoning salt next time as we are accustomed to lower sodium. I will try frozen green beans next time and see how they stand up to all that simmering. For an after-work meal, I would simmer the ham hock the night before and store the meat separately so that it wouldn't overcook during reheating. Then the remaining cooking could be easily accomplished in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Annacia. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.

Yummy! My mom used to do something like this with fresh green beans, but this was much more flavorful because of the onions and seasoning salt. Thanks so much for sharing! Made for Rookie Tag game.

Had a ham bone leftover so this was perfect. I did end up using canned potatoes for ease. Amazingly I did need to add salt, in spite of the ham saltiness. Good way to make boring canned vegetables interesting again. Thanks Annacia! Made for PRMR 2012
