I can make a meal on just these beans. I leave about 1/2 cup of the liquid in the beans. This is a great way to deal with less than fresh supermarket produce.

OMG.....these beans were soooooo good. I could easily eat just this for dinner. I loved the flavor from the broth. I will definately make these again. I tried them b/c I was making a Portuguese meal, but I found a repeat recipe from it. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

Fantastic! It even impressed our Portuguese friends. Bacon was an easy substitute for salt pork. I don't even like green beans, and I'd happily make this again and again, and again.....

Nice way to do beans, though not extraordinary. Good taste, nice texture, would recommend!
