My neighbor across the street gave us some vegetables out of their garden. The squash I know how to cook. And the corn on the cobb.
The green beans…not so much. The only thing I knew to do with them is boil them for a bit. They are good that way too…but I remember my grandmothers green beans and she must have done something else to them. Hers were much better than just plain old boiled ones.
I did find a recipe online that sounded pretty good. It was a post on The Pioneer Woman about how to cook fresh green beans one way.
Her recipe called for bacon grease…which I didn’t have. She said that butter and olive oil would work too. So that is what I used.
I chopped up some onion and red bell pepper. I didn’t have a garlic clove so I had to use some dried minced garlic.
Cooked the onion and garlic for a few minutes then added the green beans and bell pepper.
Put a cup of chicken broth in it and let it cook. I followed her recommendation and let all the broth cook off.
Man those were some good green beans! My hubby liked them!! He wants me to do it again! So you know they were good.
I would like some other ways to cook them too. Easy ways of course.
What’s your favorite way to cook green beans?
