1 pound dried navy beans
1 smoked ham steak (pre-cooked - bone-in okay - found in the meat case) - cut into pieces
1 cup (1 large or 2 small) bell peppers - green and red work great - diced
1 small onion - diced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t thyme - optional
The night before cooking:
Rinse the navy beans removing any foreign matter (pebbles, etc.). Place beans in crockpot and cover with water. Place lid atop the crockpot and allow the beans to soak overnight.
Drain the navy beans of all but 1-1 1/2 cups of water. Add ham steak, diced peppers, onion, olive oil, and thyme (if desired). Stir well combining all ingredients.
Place lid atop the crockpot and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or until beans are soft and delicious.
Add salt and pepper (after cooking) to taste.
Serve with corn bread or a french loaf and green jello for dessert :>

When Kathy Waddell at ComputerScrapbookTraining.com shared this recipe with us she also added these tips:
This tasty RV recipe is pretty simple to make, can be customized to taste and, best of all, the ingredients do not take up lots of room in the camper. I keep green and red peppers chopped up in a bag in the freezer. When I need them, I just put them in a bowl and microwave them for a minute to thaw and then buzz them in the food chopper to make smaller pieces.
RV Cooking Show viewers that give this easy RV recipe a try will enjoy wonderful smells coming from the pot during the day and have a great hot meal ready to go for dinner.
Thanks Kathy...this dish is a hit in my 5th wheel!!
