    I would have like to use fresh beans, but unfortunately the one I had were not good anymore. So I had a bag of frozen green and yellow beans with baby carrots that I used. This recipe was perfect. The beans didn't taste like frozen like usually. I think I could have received family with this recipe without them noticing it was frozen beans. The fact that they cooked in water and bacon gave them a great taste. Thanks Porfavorcorona :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

    Who would have thought that stewed green beans could taste so good? Looking forward to trying this again with a ham hock.

    A nice change for us with grean beans. So easy to throw together. I chose to brown the beacon after the cooking was done to top it off. The next time I would like to add onions to ours. Great meal.

    So good and so easy. I did add just a little onion (per hubby's request). Will make this way again! :)

    Yum! This was easy to make and tasted great! I did add a little extra bacon though. :) I will be adding this into regular rotation at our table. Thank you!
