Rustic ham and beans

Last week when I was fueling my Pinterest addiction, I ran across this incredibly simple recipe.

It’s a very rustic and heart warming meal. I imagine walking into an English pub on a cold and misty night and being served a piping hot bowl of this with a hunk of crusty bread. Now, that is a completely made up scenario as I have never been to England, but after dipping into the crockpot mid-afternoon and taking a taste, the scenario was further fueled.

You can’t get a more inexpensive and filling meal.


1 pound ham with bone in(I used bone-in ham steak)
1 pound dried great northern beans
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
6 cups water

Place everything in crockpot but ham. Stir a little to combine. Place ham on top and push slightly under water so it is submerged.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Take lid off and stir a little to break up ham. Cook another 2-4 hours.

Serve with corn bread or hunk of crusty bread. Enjoy the salty, creamy, beany delight in your bowl.
