Serving: 6
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours 45 minutes
Total Time 4 hours 5 minutes


  • 1k lb fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 ham hocks
  • 750gr potato, quartered
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1 tbsp chicken stock powder - I used Vegeta
  • 1 ground black pepper, to taste


  • Put the hocks in the slow cooker and add boiling water - about halfway up the crock.
  • (Admin Note: if your bowl is ceramic it's best to preheat it with some hot tap water first then discard this water, so that you are not adding boiling water to a cold ceramic pot which can cause it to crack)
  • Cover and turn HIGH for 1 hour.
  • Prep beans, snap in halves if large, put in with the hocks along with the onion. Reduce heat to Low and cook for 2 hours until the hocks are easy to pull apart. take out the hocks and pull the meat off the bones, and put back into the pot. I put the skin back in to keep the flavour going.
  • Add potatoes and and spices (do a taste test for how much salt to add in). At this stage I put the bones back in as well...but this is not necessary if you don't want too. Cook another 45 minutes until potatoes are done.
  • To serve, use a slotted spoon to put beans, potatoes, and ham into a serving dish with a little broth.
  • I did add a bit more water at the end as it was a tad salty - for me...
