Southern Style Green Beans
Southern Style Green Beans aren't just for Easter anymore! Make them go with a summer BBQ or a family get together --they're a veggie treat!
Servings 10 servings
- 4 slices bacon cut into small pieces
- 2 pounds fresh green beans ends trimmed and snaped in half
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Rinse beans in a colander, then wrap up in a clean dish towel to dry.
Cook bacon pieces in a large saucepan until crisp. Add green beans to the pan and continue to cook on medium heat, tossing beans well to coat in bacon dripping, until beans turn bright green about 3 minutes. Slowly add the chicken broth, then the salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
Simmer on low, covered with the lid cracked just a bit, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 1 hour. Adjust seasoning. Remove to serving platter with a slotted spoon. Top with a splash or so of the cooking liquid and serve.
