Southern Style Green Beans the Porkless Way
50 mins (prep 15, cooking 35)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
In a search for a healthier way to cook those delicious green beans like my grandmother made I devised a recipe that will almost fool you! Of course you can always throw in some salt pork or bacon if you aren't watching your fat intake. These really are delicious and there's never a bean left in the bottom of the pot. The prep time included prepping the green beans.
