What kind of green beans to use for this recipe –
- For this recipe, I used fresh Blue Lake Green Beans from the garden. Look for fresh beans at the farmer’s market or even your local grocery store.
- Canned green beans can also be used and will be just as delicious, you will not need to steam these.
- Can you use frozen green beans? Honestly, I have never eaten a frozen green bean so I don’t know if they would work or not.
- The wide flat green beans which are called Italian Green Beans can also be used in this dish.
Try serving these homemade Bread and Butter Pickles next to a dish of these beans, they are crunchy and a bit sweet, and so easy to make. Serve a big wedge of this Cheesy Homemade Cornbread along with your green beans, they just kinda go together. Honestly, this could be a meal itself.
Let’s get to cooking
I love, love cast-iron and my favorite skillet is this white enameled cast-iron skillet, it can go from stovetop to the oven and the clean-up is quick. These white Staub mini casserole dishes are perfect to make single servings.
Maple Apple Skillet Cake has a moist vanilla cake topped with maple-flavored apples.
This Vanilla Bean Skillet Cake is so easy and so delicious. Moist and tender and full of flavorful vanilla bean seeds.

Barbequed Green Bean with Ham
- Clean and stem the green beans. Slice or snap in half if they are too long
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat then add the oil and saute the diced ham, onion, and garlic until the is ham cooked and lightly browned and the onions are soft. Remove the mixture to a bowl.
- In the same skillet, add the green beans and water. Stir and cover with a lid to steam until tender-crisp, about 7-10 minutes. Stir the green beans around a few times during steaming.
- Stir in the barbecue sauce and add the ham, onions, and garlic to the green beans. Cook over medium-low heat until the barbecue sauce has thickened and coated the green beans for about 10 minutes.I prefer to put the beans in a 350° F. oven and bake for about 15 minutes to caramelize the barbeque sauce.
- Serve warm.
