Almost every Southerner I know enjoys themselves some green beans everyonce in awhile. I have a recipe that I learned from my old college roommate. This recipe taste like the good ones you get from the "meat and three" down the street. My theory is the longer they cook the better they taste! Another great variation if if you add diced potatos and boil them with the green beans. Enjoy!
-1 Large Can of Italian Style Green Beans, DRAINED (or 2 Small)
-Bacon, Hamhock, Fatback, (whatever you have on hand- this is optional so if you are a vegetarian then skip this part).
-1 Large Container of Chicken Broth (32 oz)
-Minced Garlic 1/4-1/2 tsp. (depending on your taste)
-1/2 Onion Diced
-Salt and cracked pepper to taste
1. In pot add green beans, onion, pork, broth, garlic, salt and pepper. Boil then simmer on low. As I stated earlier, the longer you cook the better they taste. You can also cook these on low in a crock-pot.
