DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan or medium Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until it has rendered most of its fat and has begun to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the green beans and potatoes and enough water to just cover them.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then cover the pan and simmer until the beans are very tender, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally and adding more water if necessary to keep the beans covered.
  • As the beans get close to being done they will become quite fragile, so take care when stirring.
