    Hello, I hope someone can help! I'm just finding my way around the site and there is a recipe I am wanting to make tomorrow for dinner guests. It is on the site, Crock Pot Green Beans & Bacon by, like2create

    1 lb fresh string bean, cut into 1-inch lengths (OR leave whole, cut ends)
    6 -8 slices bacon
    1 -2 tablespoon garlic, diced
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    fresh ground pepper Directions:
    1
    Place bacon at the bottom of the crockpot. Place other ingredients on top of the bacon in crock pot. Stir. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. If you have a large crock pot, you can double the recipe.

    My question is, should I add any water? The recipe does not call for it and I am planning to use fresh green beans. I have emailed the person who shared the recipe but not sure I will hear in time.

    Thank you for any help!

    Nope - the beans and the onions will create enough water. Remember that the crockpot is a sealed environment and you need much less liquid than if cooking on the stove or in the oven. I make many recipes that call for no added liquid or no more than 1/2 cup or a cup, depending on what the dish is.
