Green beans with onion and ham

Green beans with onion and ham, a simple dish, full of flavor. A healthy and different dish from the classic dish of beans with potatoes.

This dish of beans that I bring you is accompanied by a very poached onion, almost caramelized, although I do not add sugar, but I let it cook enough so that it is well browned, halfway through cooking so as not to put so much oil on it, I add tablespoons of water, it looks good that way and I don't add so much oil.
