Ham, Green Beans, & Potatoes in the Crock Pot

READY IN: 6hrs 5mins
Recipe by AmyMCGS

Here's the simple crock pot combination I've come up with based on friends' advice and some other recipes I've read. I like to serve it with corn bread and sliced fresh tomatoes. NOTE: In the time since I originally posted this recipe, I've tweaked it a bit more when I make it at home. I found that the addition of some chicken broth really enhances the flavor! However, I'm leaving it here as originally posted.

If you like this, my Mom used to make a soup that had similar ingredients - You take fully cooked ham or a ham steak and cut it into cubes, take a bag of frozen cut green beans and then take skinned/cleaned potatoes and cube them... add enough water to cover...also add salt and pepper to taste... and cook in a dutch oven pan for about 30 minutes on the stovetop.... you basically cook it until potatoes are cooked through and the green beans are thawed and warm. It's a really easy soup to do after a hard day's work, even though it's not a crockpot recipe (I tried it in the crockpot once and it was very bland and the ham was overcooked).
