"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."
"These green beans are so simple! It's so much easier to put these on in the morning and let them cook all day. The flavor is perfect! I will be using this recipe on a regular basis! "
"These were great! My dad gave me the beans so I really didn't know if it were 2 lbs. I only added 1/2 pound of bacon and I added two bouillon cubes because I thought I had a bit too much water for just one. Thank you Dienia B. Uh Oh! I just realized...I forgot the onion. Oh well, They'll be even better next time then, huh! lol."
"Delicious and easy. I love the new potatoes with the green beans. I used turkey bacon (my choice)which lent a smokey taste to all of the other ingredients. This is a great side that goes with any main dish well. Thanks for posting. "
"Dee, You rock!How awesome is this recipe?I can now make homemade green beans that taste wonderful without simmering them for hours on end putting way too much heat in my Kitchen:)thank you!PeggyLynn"
"Perfect green beans w/ no effort or pot-watching! No fresh green beans to be had so I subbed frozen but they were very good. I can't wait until there are fresh available b/c this is THE way I'll be making them from now on! Thanks, Dee!"
"Soooo Good and Easy. Can't wait to make again. And so easy too! Thanks!"
"Dee, this was absolutely TO DIE FOR!!! So easy, yet so wonderfully flavorful! I can't believe the difference that adding the chicken boullion cube made!!! OMG!!! You should publish this one! I promise, this is a DEFINITE KEEPER in my house!!! I'll never do my green beans any other way! Just marvelous!!! (NO LEFTOVERS!! The kids LOVED this!) Thank you so much for posting this! :)"
