Ham bone help? No beans please!!

I have a wonderful big ol' ham bone that I left a fair amount of meat on from a ham I made earlier this year that has been waiting for me in the freezer. I decided today was the day to pull it out but I'll be danged if I can find something to do with it.

I've found some delicious recipes for pork loins and cubed ham (which I also have if needed) but nothing for cooking all this good meat off the bone.

My one request is that it not be a bean recipe or a split pea recipe. I'd love to do something with rice but I'm not stuck on that.

Can anyone help?

Cook the ham bone in chicken/vegetable broth, Pacific brand is to die for
Cook until the meat comes off the bone
Remove bone and any debris and fat floating on top.
Reduce heat and throw in a handful of dry soup mix and set timer for 15"........when timer goes off add
some green shredded cabbage and sliced/chopped new potatoes
Reset timer for an additional 30"
It is to die for.........

dry soup mix has no beans
it is barley, split peas, and forget what else but no beans
It is why it cooks so quickly.....
and you need to check to pot to make certain your liquid
level is maintained......as the soup mix, cabbage and potatoes
take up liquid.......
You will love that combination

One thing that I grew up on that my grandmother did with ham bones and ham, is cook them with green beans, onions and potatoes. It's quite delicious!

Yes definitely yummmmmmy
I have done that too........the secret remains though to add
veggies late enough so they are not overcooked.
Mom always did that and her soups were to die for......
She even did that for Corned Beef and Cabbage which we all loved.

There's two things I'd do with that ham bone. First off I'd make a ham and potatoes au gratin. Then the next night I'd stew the bone with cabbage, onions, potatoes and carrots, adding a can of low sodium broth for liquid.
