This is also something I made to take to Thanksgiving lunch at my Grandparent’s house and dinner with my dad. They were super yummy, although some people thought they were really spicy. My husband and I didn’t think so, but we like it hot, so maybe we just don’t notice. Still, they turned out well and everyone liked them.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup chopped yellow onions
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 8 ounces ham, cubed ( I used thick cut slices of ham from the deli at the store)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and halved
Add the oil in a medium, heavy saucepan. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add the ham, garlic, and beans. Add enough water to almost completely cover the beans. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2 hours. Remove from the heat and serve with the cooking liquid.
