If you like to garden and grow your own green beans this is a good way to cook them. Now if I can only start growing my own New Potatoes! Try this with salt pork and it is good too!

Oh, MMMMMMM, this was delicious. I was surprised that the green beans cooked up that fast!! (Normally I boil them for at least 2-3 hours.) But they were delicious! I will be making this one often, thanks!!
