Prep Time:


  • 2 teaspoon(s) apple-cider vinegar
  • 3 pound(s) fresh green beans
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoon(s) garlic finely minced (about 4 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 2 ounce(s) tasso ham
  • 3 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter


  1. 1. Place ham in the freezer until almost frozen, 3-4 hours. Cut into julienne strips. Set aside.

  2. 2. Fill a large pot with water, bring to boil. Add beans; cook until bright green, 2-3 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, set aside.

  3. 3. Place butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When butter is melted, add onions and garlic; saute until onions are translucent - about 5 minutes. Add green beans, and turn heat to high; saute tossing until beans are heated through - about 2 minutes.

  4. 4. Add ham, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper; saute until ham renders fat - about 3 minutes.

  5. Serve hot.
