Slow-cooked, Savory Green Beans

Side dishes are always tough for me. It's so rare that I find one everyone will eat, but this recipe is so easy and always has people going back for seconds. I love doing these green beans on holidays and for dinners where I know I will be busy with other things in the kitchen.

What you'll need:

  • 2 bags of fresh green beans for every 4 guests

  • Chicken broth, usually about 2 large boxes per 2 bags of fresh green beans

  • 6 slices of bacon, you can always do more depending on your love for bacon

  • 1 tsp. of roasted red pepper flakes

  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

  • Fresh garlic minced - I usually do 1 clove for every bag of green beans


  1. Wash and rinse your green beans, then remove the ends.

  2. Place your bacon slices in a large-sized, deep saucepan and cook until they are semi-crispy.

  3. Remove bacon slices and set them aside. Leave the bacon grease in your saucepan and add your green beans.

  4. Once you have added your green beans, add your salt and pepper, then let those cook until the green beans start to simmer.

  5. Add your minced garlic and chicken broth. Reduce heat and cook on low for approximately 3-4 hours.

  6. When your green beans are almost done slow-cooking, chop your cooked bacon into bits.

  7. Once your green beans are tender, but still a little firm, strain them.

  8. Add your beans and bacon bits back into the saucepan and cook on low for about 15 more minutes. Then you're ready to serve!
