Romano Beans with Serrano and Poached Egg

Romano Beans with Serrano and Poached Egg

A favorite that Dad and I always cooked together when we were in Spain, one of the few places broad beans can be found in abundance:
2 1/2 cups romano beans, ends trimmed
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 small cloves garlic, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
7 oz. serrano ham, diced
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp. white vinegar
 
Cook the beans in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and plunge into ice water. Drain again once cool.
Heat the oil in a pan and saute the garlic until it begins to brown. Add the beans and saute for a minute, then add the ham.
Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a simmer. Add the vinegar. Crack the eggs into a ramekin and slide them one at a time into the water. Cook for about 4 minutes, scoop out and drain on a towel.
Divide the bean and ham mixture onto plates, topping each with an egg. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
