I made this recipe up one night when trying to find a good way to cook fresh green beans. My whole family loves them. My husband regularly asks for them for dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean green beans and tear off ends if desired.
  2. Put green beans in pot.
  3. Add seasoning to taste (a few shakes of each).
  4. Fry 4 or 5 pieces of bacon and crumble into pot.
  5. Put enough broth in pot to steam beans, about an inch in the bottom.
  6. (You may have to add some before beans are finished.) Cover and let the broth boil-- the steam will cook the beans.
  7. Stir occasionally.

I'm not rating it, but I need to say that this recipe needs some tweaking. I find it hard to understand why you say that this serves 4 when there are NO amounts listed? I would say that this is not a recipe so much as a method. And that's okay. I have some like that, but I explain that in the description so people don't get confused. I should have really read this recipe several times and thought it through before I tried to make it for dinner.

Deanne came up with a good recipe--the melding of the lemon pepper and powders works well. A nice change, and if you've got the beans, you're sure to have everything else on hand too. So easy.
