Ham Stew for Two

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"THIS DISH is one my husband and I enjoy any time of the year, and if I don't have leftover ham, I buy a thick slice and use that. Served with a salad and rolls, it's a quick meal for two, but it's also easily adapted for a larger number. -Judy Hall, Lockport, Illinois"

We enjoy this recipe very much and double it so we can have leftovers. Nothing needs to be changed in recipe is excellent as is.

This was SO good and SO easy to put together and I love the fact that it tastes like I slaved on it forever lol. This one is going to def be used again!

REally good stew! I added celery too otherwise followed recipe exactly. Will make again for sure.

This is good stew and a nice way to use up that left over ham. I used the suggestions above and added some bouillon. I also threw in some peas and a dash of celery seed. This recipe's a keeper!

I increased this recipe to 8 servings, used Thyme instead of Savory and used 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour instead of the 3/4 cup all purpose flour and this was a big hit with my family!

very satisfying. Not something I'd make for company. but a nice family soup.
