    Mrs Goodall's Note:

    This looked yummy and easy to make. From "The Best Recipes in the World" cookbook. "This is a good recipe to use ordinary ham, as long as it is not too sweet; prosciutto or the like would be overkill".

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons butter (or extra virgin olive oil)
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 lb ham, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
    • 2 -3 large pears, not overly ripe (Bosc is a good choice)
    • 3/4 lb fresh green beans
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste
    • 1 cup chicken stock

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the butter in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the ham into 1/2 inch chunks. Add it and raise the heat to high.
    2. 2
      While the ham cooks- stir it occasionally, but let it brown a bit on the bottom-peel and core the pears and cut them into 1-inch chunks. Lower the heat to medium and add them to the pan; stir occasionally.
    3. 3
      Trim the beans, cut them into roughly 2-inch lengths, rinse them quickly, and add them to the skillet along with a sprinkling of salt and at least 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook for a minute, then raise the heat to medium-high, add the chicken stock, and stir.
    4. 4
      Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are bright green and semi-tender, the pears are quite tender, and the liquid so reduced that it is essentially a sauce, 10 - 15 minutes. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve.

      Delicious and easy. I peeled some yellow potatoes (Annabelles) and added them to the pot whilst cooking. My husband and somewhat picky 4 year-old devour it--no leftovers! It's become one of our week-night favorites.

      This is wonderful!! I love the flavors - the caramelized onions, the pears aren't mushy, the beans are still crisp, the sauce is yummy. Thanks, Stacy!
