I cooked a ham, potato salad, green beans and cornbread for Sunday dinner yesterday. Today I was cutting up the remaining ham and noticed that the bone had a LOT of meat left on it. I decided to do a soup of some kind. I had a bag of 15 bean dried beans... Perfect!
1lb bag of 15 bean mix
8 to 10 cups water
Juice and drippings from the baked ham
large onion, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Weber Steak & Chop Seasoning, optional
1/4 teaspoon Basil
Finish off with Kosher Salt, to taste
Rinse and drain the beans. Follow whatever prep you want for the beans. I use the quick soak method.
Quick soak method... Boil beans for two minutes.
Remove from heat and leave covered for 1 hour.
