Our Family Loves This Healthy One Pot Dinner
Farmstand One Pot Wonder is green beans, new potatoes, onions, and ham that are all cooked in one pot. Half way through the cooking time you can place a few ears of corn on top of everything and they cook in the pot too. The ham makes everything taste awesome and the starchy potatoes kind of make their own sauce/gravy for everything as they cook. It's so easy and you will love it! This is comfort food at it's finest. And I'm proud to say that everything in the pictures, except for the ham, was grown by me (we are all out of pork from last year and this year's hog is still growing). If you didn't grow your own taters, beans, onions, and corn this year, I bet you can find some locally grown at a roadside farm stand or farmers' market this week.
This my friends, is real food at it's best. Simple seasonal ingredients cooked without a lot of fuss. I'm in! Are you?

I make this as a soup in the Instant Pot minus the corn. It is one of my favorites.
The Country one pot meal of green beans, onions, corn, potatoes cooked with ham hocks have been a favorite meal for our families for four generations. We always cut the corn off of the cob. This is a one delicious meal. Some of us top it off with a bit of ketchup. All vegetables were fresh from the garden.
I have been doing a search on Ham, fresh green beans and new potatoes but I added 2 chopped heirloom beefsteak tomatoes plus fresh corn cut off the cob. I used a diced ham steak and added chopped sweet onion with chicken broth, s&p to taste. I suppose I could have used a bit of garlic powder to the mix but did not. Anyway just wanted to share my version of farmers market finds.
This has been a favorite in my family for awhile, we always called it poor mans stew. We dont do the corn & most of the time it was made with just green beans, onions & potatoes. We let the potatoes cook down until it forms a stew & If they were lucky they would have a ham bone to put in it, hence the name. No matter what the name is, it is delish!
I made this and it was wonderful!! My boyfriend loves it. It's so easy, in fact I'm making it again tonight!! 🙂
This is a long time favorite at our house, easy to make, quick, and so comforting. A great summer dish when it's too hot to use the oven or stand over a hot stove. It works great in the crock pot too. 🙂 I never thought about putting the corn in though...but I will next time we make it. Thanks.
And thank YOU for the kind comment!
Thanks for posting this super simple recipe. We just made it with leftover smoked ham. I also added garlic cloves and fresh rosemary. It was so tasty and my husband and I both enjoyed it!
We make this in a crock pot. We use, sausage, ham or just about any meat you want. It's so simple & easy. It's a great basic recipe. We have also put in bell pepper &/or corn. Delicious!
i make something simular but i did't know it had a name. i put g.beans on bottom of pot the sliced carrots,sliced onion then the chunked potatoes. slice smoked sausage on the top (no liquids) with lid and cook for 1hr. the vegatables make their juices. Oh so good
That sounds awesome! Do you drain the beans at all??
Wow, thank you for an allergy free meal (using uncured ham)! Good amount of veggies to boot! My sister used to throw things in a pan in layers then pour in a bottle of Catalina (sweet and sour dressing), cover, cook on low for an hour. I like it better in the crockpot with homemade sweet and sour, but I want to make your version, too. Paula Dean makes a In a Rush Boiled Dinner- ham, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and onions in a pot with just enough water to keep it from burning (not enough for everything to swim in). Pretty good!
I made this the other day and I am hooked. This will be a regular meal during winter. It is soooo good! Thank you so much for posting
Woohoo! I'm so glad you are hooked. This is the first thing I make with my first garden green beans because it is the best!
I just tried to search for a recipe on here, I just thought I'd let you know that I LOVE the new recipe layout! I love the clickable pictures that show the food, makes it so much easier to find a tasty meal! So, good job 🙂
Also, this looks delicious and it is totally awesome that you grew everything except the pig! So cool!
Yay! I'm glad you can use the index because that thing took forever to do 🙂
That looks delicious!!! I make something similar, although the water just absorbs into everything so there is no gravy. And the bottom layer caramelizes a little. Mine is called Sausage, Peppers and Onions, but I make it with green beans and smoked sausage instead 🙂
