Ham with Vegetables

"There isn't a quicker complete meal than this one—it takes just minutes in the pressure cooker," confides Ernestine Beoughter of Lawrenceville, Illinois. "The ham and vegetables turn out tender and delicious. This has been a favorite for years, especially with tiny new potatoes and fresh-from-the-garden green beans."

    I thought this was great. I browned chopped onion in the bottom of my pan first and had to leave out the salt because of family diets but it was quick and easy and a one pan meal!

    Great, quick meal! This'll be a definite keeper, especially in the summer with garden-fresh green beans. So simple to throw into the pressure cooker. Thanks!
