Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

by 247tasty

This dish received a star rating when I first served this to family and friends. This truly is an excellent meal, scrumptious, and mouth-watering. Easy to put together but slow to cook, thus, the slow cooker. However, you’ll be surprised how great this is. The meat and potatoes are cooked to perfection, they’re fabulously tender, while, the soup is bursting with flavor. This Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes is a keeper, and every family’s favorite. A tip, you can try adding Dijon Mustard towards the end, when you are cooking the potatoes, this will take this dish from good to perfect!


2 pounds of fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
1 large onion, chopped
3 ham hocks
1 ½ pound of new potatoes, quartered
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of seasoning salt
1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon granules
ground black pepper to taste

How to make Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham, and Potatoes

Step 1: Cut the beans in half (if they are large) and place them in a slow cooker. Pour water into the slow cooker rarely covering the beans. Add in the onion and ham hocks.

Step 2: Cook on high, covered. Once simmering, turn the heat to low and cook for 2 to 3 hours until the beans are crisp but not done.

Step 3: Add in the potatoes and continue to cook for 45 minutes more.

Step 4: While cooking the potatoes, remove the ham hocks from the slow cooker.

Step 5: Meanwhile, separate the meat from the bones, then, cho[ or shred the meat. Bring the meat back into the slow cooker. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, bouillon, and pepper.

Step 6: Continue cooking until the potatoes are done. You can adjust the seasoning as desired.

Step 7: Once done and ready to serve use a slotted spoon to scoop out the beans and ham and transfer to a serving dish with a little broth. Enjoy!
