Ham Green Beans and Potatoes

Crockpot Ham Green Beans and Potatoes is a great one pot dish. It is a complete meal by itself.   It is easy to prepare in the slow cooker and best of all you can use leftover holiday ham with this recipe too!

Crockpot Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes is the perfect dinner idea for busy weeknights. I love to make this in the summer with fresh green beans from the garden.

I like to serve Crockpot Ham Green Beans and Potatoes with sliced tomatoes fresh from the garden, fresh sliced onion and corn bread.

This is an easy dump and go crockpot recipe.  Simply add all of your ingredients to the slow cooker and cover.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours and when you come home the aroma will be amazing. This is a recipe that screams southern living to me.  It is my comfort food because it reminds me of my Granny.

She used to cook this several times in the summer.  I have found memories of breaking beans with her.  She would either make them in the slow cooker or the pressure cooker. I find this recipe to be so easy and safe to make too. There is nothing better than good country cooking.

When preparing this as a freezer meal simply combine all ingredients into a freezer safe bag except for water. Freeze. When ready to cook thaw in the refrigerator.  Dump into the slow cooker and add 1/2 cup water.  Cook for 6 hours on low.

Tip – Potatoes don’t always freeze the best.  You can choose to add them fresh when cooking or you can freeze.  Best results are to not use “wet” potatoes.  If you wash be sure to dry thoroughly with paper towels before you freeze.  I do find that red potatoes freeze a little better than Idaho potatoes do.

This Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes recipe is perfect for summer.  Simply purchase your green beans from the local farmers market or grow them yourself.  Regardless of you will be happy with this comfort food.  I hope you enjoy this Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes recipe that is prepared in the slow cooker.  It is our family’s favorite!

    good luck making this its still cooking on low after 10 hours i really think 1/2 cup might not be enough
    i added 2 cups with chicken broth 2 hours ago and after 800 hours on low the green beans were still not cooked

    1. If using frozen green beans you might want to thaw them a bit first & be sure the potatoes are chopped in small pieces. I make this all the time with frozen green beans & a package of frozen hash browns (cubed, not shredded).

      1. I had a similar problem, but with the potatoes. I used cubed, peeled Russet potatoes and after 8 hours on low, the potatoes were still not done. They were kind of tough. I use these potatoes for mashing and for buttered, parsleyed potatoes and never have a problem. What am I doing wrong?

    This is simple and delicious. Great way to use leftover Easter ham. I will definitely make this again. I did use a bit more than one cup of water. It was done after cooking 5 hours on low.

  3. What is the best type of ham for cooking with the potatoes and green beans? I made this long time ago but forgot what kind of ham I used, I love the smell it gives my house…. the old Fashion country smell

        1. Cottage Ham is a boneless shoulder butt, cured in brine and sold raw and wrapped in netting, then in a plastic wrapper. The purpose of the netting is to hold it together while cooking. Cottage Ham is not the same as boneless shoulder pork, which is untreated and will have a bone usually.
