Easy Crockpot Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes


I make this dish often; I have never really measured the ingredients, but can give you a reasonable approximation. Note: Freeze leftover cooking liquid, and then add to bean soup, ham or cabbage dishes, or use to cook dumplings in. It’s delicious!

Crockpot recipes are always so good, the secret is the slow cooking, it lets the ingredients keep all of their flavors. Check out this recipe.

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.


This easy one-pot recipe cooks up in one big crockpot (or soup pot), and it only requires three ingredients. The title pretty much gives it away, right?


  • 2 pounds fresh green beans
  • 2 pounds ham
  • 4 baking potatoes
  • 1 large onion, optional
  • 3 cups water
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


Dice the ham, green beans, onion and potatoes. Add ingredients into your Crock Pot with 3 cups of water and season with salt & pepper (according to taste). You can also use Steak Spice in yours. Cook for 6 hours on Low. Tip: To get a crispier dish, we’d suggest sautéeing everything in a saute pan once it’s done cooking in the crockpot.
