I was so excited to see this posted. This is how my grandmother used to make green beans. I made this for my family and boy oh boy, what a delight. I left off the red pepper flakes because my kids can't take the heat. But I am sure that would be good to try. Thanks. This really made me so happy.
EXACTLY how my grandma made hers too! I love these I am glad someone posted this also because I had forgotten them and I always loved these! thank you:)
I would add that right before you serve them you drain, add ghee and let them sort of fry in the butter for a moment or two. My father liked them almost burned. True southern style is to use the wide beans.
Wonderful flavor! I cooked my bacon and onion together and used frozen beans. I'll do this again with fresh beans since this was a bit too mushy for my husband to enjoy. I'd agree the texture could be improved but I loved the flavor of this. Thanks for sharing a great comfort food recipe.
I make it over and over again! I don't really want to share!
Great southern beans. Simple and tasty. Thanks greyghost for a nice keeper. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet special.
OMG these are the BEST green beans ever. I loved the bacon slow cooked with the beans. So good and your right, they do melt in your mouth. So good. Thank you for sharing this with us.
I make my beans with a T of bacon fat... (always have jar handy!) and S&P to taste. These are great!
