    Slow Cooker Southern Style Green Beans

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Southerners like their green beans cooked until they are very soft and gray-green in color. Cooking these delicious beans in the slow cooker allows the vegetable to absorb the wonderful flavors of bacon and onion. I am not a fan of canned vegetables, and even though the color of the finished beans is similar to that of canned green beans, there is absolutely no comparison. Rather than salty, rubbery, and disgusting like the canned beans, these beans are tender and flavorful!

    Since this recipe requires less than 10 minutes hands-on time, it may become a favorite of the cook!

    List of Ingredients

    Slow Cooker Southern Style Green Beans

    1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon (the Hormel cooked and crumbled bacon in the package is fine, but donít use imitation bacon bits)
    3 tablespoons dehydrated onion flakes, or substitute 1 small chopped onion
    1 pound frozen whole green beans
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon granular chicken bouillon, or 1 bouillon cube


    Place the bacon and onion in the crock of a slow cooker. Add the green beans, but don't stir. Mix the water and the bouillon; pour over the beans. Cook on low 4-6 hours or high 2-3 hours. Stir just before serving.
