Campfire Bean ‘N’ Ham Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + standing Grill: 1-1/2 hours
Makes12 servings (3 quarts)
Unless you are camping or grilling out and just WANT to make this as directed, these are just as good by cooking on the stove or in a slow cooker, plus can skip the soak. Smoke isn’t a huge factor in a Dutch oven with a lid on it on the grill. The smokiness comes from the smoked ham hocks so do yourself a favor by not adding the synthetic flavor of Liquid Smoke here. Also, for more flavor in everything I make I always substitute good chicken broth for water in recipes and it makes a big difference here as well. Great with a nice slice of cornbread.
Have made this soup for years
How can I cook this on the stove top? How long? Any directions someone can share? Thanks!!!
This was excellent! I did have to finish cooking until the beans were soft on top of the stove & added about 4 more cups of water at that time. Also, I used 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke since I was making it in a cast iron dutch oven with a lid in the oven on 350 instead of using the grill.
I love ham and bean soup but have been trying to cut back on fat and calories. I was having a hard time finding a lighter version of this recipe and finally found this one. Generally speaking, I will make a recipe as is for the first time and then make any adjustments from there. However, I don't have a grill and really wanted to try this recipe. I started it on the stove top and finished it off in the oven. I have to say it was absolutely excellent. It might be missing the smoky flavor you would get by making it on the grill but perhaps this could be compensated for by using some liquid smoke (which I will try adding when I make this again). Yummie!!!!
excellent soup . . . I did it on the stove and let it simmer. Before I served it, I brought it to a boil and put in the veggies so they didn't get soggy. I would definitely make this again!
Very easy to make and very tasty.
