    large potatoes, peeled (or not)
  • 1

DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Place whole ham shank in slow cooker.
  • 2. Cover ham with prepared fresh green beans and potatoes.
  • 3. Pour chicken broth and canned green bean juice over all ingredients.
  • 4. Top with salt and pepper.
  • 5. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
  • 6. In the last hour of cooking, remove the bone from the ham shank. The meat should fall off pretty easily (or at least be close to it). Keep meat in slow cooker and continue cooking for 30 minutes.
