Ham and beans, oh my! This is one of the EASIEST recipes ever, and it is so delicious! Â You can throw the ingredients in a pot and cook it on the stove, or you can do what I do, and use the slow cooker!
I had told my mom I really wanted a non-stick slow cooker for Christmas (cleaning up after my ceramic crock was a pain in the you-know-what!) To my surprise, my parents got me a completely AWESOME Ninja 3-in-1 cooker for Christmas instead! (Thanks mom & dad!!) 🙂 And this was the first meal I made in it!
You will need:
- 1 lb bag of dried northern beans
- Cut up chunks of ham (I also had a frozen ham bone in the freezer and added that)
- 6 cups of water
- 2 Tablespoons of onion powder
- salt/pepper to taste
You do not need to soak the beans beforehand, if you use the slow cooker. Just throw all the ingredients in your slow cooker, give it a stir, and let it cook on low for 8 hours. The aroma that filled the house was unbelievable! All day long, it was like torture waiting for this to finally be done.
My boyfriend and I LOVED this dish!! And it was so ridiculously easy! Chris actually said “I never expected this kind of flavor”. SO flavorful! If you are looking for an easy-peasy dish that is delicious, you should try this one! This is now going to be one of my recipes that I call on often!
