Southern Skillet Green Beans with Ham

As a Southerner, food is about the seasoning.  Seasoned with love and pork is just about all there is to cookin’ a great meal.  Y'all know, everything is better when there is pork in it.  Beans of every sort have a hunk, or pieces, of ham, bacon, salt pork or hog jowl.  This dish is a skillet stir fry of a Southern classic…Green Beans with Ham.  I used my new T-fal skillet, I received as a gift to review from Cooking Planit, to make this comfort dish. You can read my review for T-Fal here and for Cooking Planit here.  Enter my Cooking Planit T-Fal Giveaway!

Cook onions 2 minutes, then add ham.  Stirring to prevent burning.

Add beans and stir fry.
This non-stick scratch resistant stays true to the claim.  It really took a scraping from me and a scratch to be found!

Cook until the beans are just the way you like them.  


Southern Skillet Green Beans with Ham

1/2 pound smoked ham, chunks or diced
1 pound fresh green beans, tipped and tailed
1 medium sweet onion, chopped or sliced
(save 1/8 to 1/4 cup onion, mince for garnish)
1 to 2 Tablespoons bacon grease or olive oil

Heat bacon grease or olive oil in a 10” skillet to medium high.  Add onion and cook 2 minutes, stirring to prevent burning.  Add ham and green beans.  Continue stirring to prevent burning, 10 minutes or until crisp tender.  If you wish to have true Southern beans that are  tender…add 1/2 cup water or chicken broth, cover (I used a plate) and cook another 5 to 10 minutes until tender.  Top with minced onion.  Enjoy!
