    Wildflour's Note:

    Isn't funny how we can take something perfectly healthy....and make it totally fattening?!! I've made green beans this way since....well, more than 20 years now, and wouldn't have them any other way! VERY flavorful, comfort food at its very best! Cooking time includes crock pot time.

      Add half a stick of butter to bacon grease, (4 Tbl.).
    4. 4
      Add chopped onion and 1 Tbl. balsamic vinegar and cook slowly over low heat for about 20 minutes til soft and sweet.

      These beans are really good. I knocked off a star because of all the fat but they tasted 5 star. My husband loved them.

      This is a keeper. Perfect comfort food. I love crockpot cooking so I'm always looking for a good recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe stated and would not change a thing.
