Fresh green beans were a staple of Easter meals when I was growing up. The problem with making them, however, is that they often need to be monitored closely, or they get over-done. That said, if you’re having company, you may not have that luxury. This recipe takes some of that worry away.
In addition, it can be handy to have more than one slow cooker. Even more so if one of them has a divided pot. Then you prepare yesterday’s ham recipe along with today’s green beans and have most of your meal cooking without you needing to hover over the stove.
- 1 lb fresh green beans, cut into pieces (you can also use 2 cans of green beans, drained and cook for less time)
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup bacon, chopped into pieces
- 1 Tablespoon vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
- salt & pepper to taste
- Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and mix well.
- Cook on low heat for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours for fresh green beans. If you’re using canned green beans cook for an hour on high or two hours on low.
The bacon is what really adds flavor to the beans. Use it uncooked and fresh.
