This makes A LOT if green beans! Made it for Christmas dinner and it sure was pretty setting on the table! However, (this may be MY crock acting up), it was not done! 8 hrs later and the beans were still pretty crunchy... the potatoes were done and the bacon was done too... but the beans still had a bit to go... I transferred them into a pot on the stove and let them boil for a bit, and this did help... but it delayed dinner... The flavor was good though! If I make these again, I would cut down on the bacon... it made the "broth" pretty greasy...

These were really good as part of my Easter dinner. Next time I think I'll add less bacon, but that's just to make it a bit healthier. Thanks for sharing!

I love this so much...! I add quite a bit of real margarine to mine and sub ham chunks for bacon, but I want to thank you for writing it down!!

Wonderful recipe. I only used 3-4 slices of bacon, but did everything else as written. Easy & do ahead. Thanks.

Easy and Good! I leave out the bacon, though. I also use Sea Salt vs. regular salt.

This was delicious. I dislike crunchy green beans, and this method softens them up perfectly. I drained the liquid and froze it to use as a base for pea soup this fall.

I had high expectations for this recipe. I was a bit disappointed. There wasn't enough flavor for all the water I needed (should have added more bouillon). I didn't really like that the bacon was "boiled". It was really soft. I won't be making this again.
