Remove ends from green beans, and cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces. Wash beans.
Place water and ham hock in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add beans, salt, and sugar; cover, and cook 20 minutes or until tender.
Note: For Southern-style green beans, cook over low heat about 2 hours or until very tender.
