Instant Pot Navy Beans and Ham

Instant Pot Navy Beans and Ham | Large Family Table Meals

If you’ve never tried ham and beans with Navy Beans in the Instant Pot, you are going to change your mind. Navy beans are so yummy, but they also have a lot of nutritional value. A really fun tidbit about Navy beans says that “In¬†Australia, navy bean production began during¬†World War II¬†when it became necessary to find an economical way of supplying a nutritious food to the many troops‚ÄĒespecially American troops‚ÄĒbased in¬†Queensland.” (source)

You will love the simplicity of this dinner recipe and your family will love the delicious taste! There is also a slow cooker option and you can pair this soup with some delicious dinner rolls!!

Ingredients for Instant Pot Navy Beans and Ham

If you’re going to take the time to make this recipe, you may be wondering what delicious ingredients help to make it. Honestly, all of the ingredients in here help make it one of the best meals on this blog.

  • Cooked Ham – You can find cooked ham right in the meat section at the store. It’s fairly inexpensive, which is another reason I like this meal. You might even try making Ham in the Instant Pot and using what is left over for this meal.
  • Dry Navy Beans – If you’ve never used navy beans before, I’m going to walk you through it. Cooking these beans is fairly easy!
  • Diced Tomatoes – I think this is what makes this recipe so unique! Using diced tomatoes makes me happy because it adds so much flavor.
  • Olive Oil – This olive oil is going to help bring a lot of flavor to this meal.

You can see the recipe card for the complete list of ingredients in this meal. All of the ingredients are nutritious, which makes me want to make this meal more often for our large family table.

Slow Cooker Option

What if you don’t have a slow cooker but you still want to make this meal? An Instant Pot isn’t necessary to make Navy Beans and Ham. All you need to do for the slow cooker is to put all of the ingredients into it and place on low for six hours.

This is a great meal to start at the beginning of the day and then it’s done by the end of the day. I love making this on a Friday afternoon. When we’re all tired from the week, we can sit down and enjoy a nice meal together. Plus, you can easily have tons of leftovers!

How to Store & Freeze

What happens if you make this meal but you have tons of leftovers? Navy Beans and Ham is so easy to store in the fridge if you have an airtight container. Just eat within 3-5 days.

If you plan on freezing it, then you will need to make sure it’s in a proper container for freezing. It can stay in the freezer for up to six months.
