This dish was created out of boredom with plain, average green beans! It's sweet, tangy and savory...and my kids absolutely love it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I use leftover sliced deli ham since it is already sliced thin and makes perfect tiny pieces, but leftover dinner ham would be delicious also!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and ham; cook and stir until brown bits start to show up on the bottom of your pan, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix the red wine vinegar into the pan, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom. The vinegar will evaporate quickly - don't panic. Mix in the mustard, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the green beans and stir to coat. Cook just until tender but still crisp, about 5 minutes. Season with kosher salt and serve.

This was very good and very easy. It adds a nice tang to plain green beans, but might clash with a flavorful main dish. Stir the beans before serving as the sauce does not cling to the beans. And use fresh beans whenever possible! Be forewarned, they smell like dirty socks when you're cooking them. Read More

I didn't have the problem with the sauce not sticking to the beans. It is a bit overpowering though. Served with soy/garlic marinated chops. Thought it would complement them but the flavor of the beans just took over. They are flavorful though and will try to find something to better serve them with. Read More

Instead of honey mustard we used a grainy Dijon mustart...It seems to add to the texture Read More

Thank you so much for this recipe! I needed something creative to make and based on your recipe I made a great main dish with what I had. I used a canned ham bag of frozen green beans the red wine vinegar regular yellow mustard and lots of pepper. Did not add any salt since the canned ham is super salty. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Good way to add some taste to regular green beans. Boys liked it. I used fresh green beans and boiled them for about 10 min before (so they weren't so hard). Read More
