Slow cooked and delicious. Can be made with either canned or fresh green beans with fantastic results. Tastes best with some of the juice accompanying the beans.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans green beans (with juice, or 1 lb fresh green beans with enough water to just cover)
- 2 -4 slices bacon, ripped into natural pieces
- 1/2 tablespoon pepper sauce (Texas Pete, tabasco vinegar)
- 1/2-1 tablespoon salt (or to desired taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1/4 cup white onion (optional)
- 1Grab a good sized pot.
- 2Set the heat on the stove to medium high.
- 3Cook the bacon in the pot until brown, but not crunchy (include onion in this step cooked until translucent if desired).
- 4Add canned beans with juice to pot, making sure to stir the bacon and its juices into liquid.
- 5Add pepper sauce, salt, and pepper to pot.
- 6Leave on medium-high heat, uncovered, until beans and liquid come to a slight boil.
- 7When a boil is achieved, stir, turn the heat down to medium-low and cover (adjust the heat so the beans are just about boiling with the cover on but not boiling out of the pot).
- 8Cook for 1 hour, stirring every 10-20 minutes.
- 9Add more spices if desired (take a taste test every now and then).
- 10For fresh beans, before cooking as directed above, boil beans in enough water to cover + 1 teaspoon salt for 5 minutes (I feel this helps get rid of the strange taste some fresh green beans have).
- 12Add fresh green beans to recipe as indicated, but add enough water to cover once more.
