Green Beans, Southern Style!

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mommy Bean

This is the recipe for the authentic green beans my Grandmother made and passed down through the generations! You will have to reserve some bacon grease next time you fry bacon, because there is no substitute for the flavor it gives green beans! Bon appetit, Y'all!

Bacon grease and green beans - how can it miss? We don't eat green beans from a can so I used fresh. For the liquid, I used about 1/4 cup of vegetable stock. Simmering for 1/2 hour made the green beans tender crisp - which is just how we like them! Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC - Spring 2009
