This is another hearty family meal from the park, filled with beans, potatoes and ham and serving four people. (We earlier made Silver Dollar City's Succotash, if you'd like to try that recipe, too!) Follow along with me on the video, or just cook from the park's recipe below.
Ingredients Serves four
1 cup whole green beans
1 cup whole wax beans
1 cup whole baby carrots
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup baking potatoes (sliced)
1 cup onion (sliced julienne)
1/2 cup red bell pepper (strips)
1/2 cup green bell pepper (strips)
3 strips Pit ham (cut in half-inch cube)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon leaf thyme
In a pot of boiling water blanch the carrots and beans to a point where they are still tender crisp. (Alternatively you can steam them in the microwave in a microwave steamer bowl for 4-5 minutes). Drain and cool in ice water.
In a large skillet heat olive oil and sauté the sliced potatoes & cook to 3/4 done.
Add the onions and peppers, cubed ham and seasonings.
Then add the chilled beans & carrots, stirring all the ingredients & flavors together. Sauté for 5-7 minutes.
This might be the easiest meal I've made on our "Social Distancing Kitchen" show, and it's definitely one of the tastiest, too. It's a great meat-and-veggies family dinner that would be worth making even if it didn't come from a theme park.
But it does, which makes this extra special for theme park fans wanting a taste of that magic while the parks are closed. We hope that you will enjoy Silver Dollar City's Harvest Skillet, along with the rest of the theme park food we've made over the past few weeks here on Theme Park Insider.
