Top Review by Sherry W.
A wonderful way to enjoy fresh green beans and potatoes. The spices and broth give the vegetables a nice flavor. I cooked this until all of the broth evaporated and the potatoes browned slightly. It's like having fried potatoes with all of the flavor and none of the fat (I left out the ham). I will be making this a lot. Thanks for posting.
- 1⁄3 lb country ham, pieces trimmed of fat and chopped small
- 1 lb fresh green beans, tips removed,and sliced
- 1 1⁄2 lbs new potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground marjoram
