Southern Green Beans
50 mins (prep 5, cooking 45)
4 ingredients
8 servings
We have a family day every other month where everyone brings a dish. When I realized that no one was bringing a vegetable I dug through my pantry and refrigerator and came up with this recipe. It went over really well with everyone... and I come from a very vocal Italian family that feels free to tell you what they liked and didn't like about a dish. The bacon in this dish will not be browned or crunchy but it really gives great flavor to the green beans. Just make sure you dice it and don't use large pieces. I also eliminated a large part of the canning liquid so the 'pot liquor' would have a full-bodied flavor and the beans would not be floating in too much liquid.
