These are the most perfect Southern style green beans you have ever had!
And when you see how easy they are to prepare you will want to make them every night!
So I started with a big bag of “half runners” the Southerners favorite style bean.
snap the ends
break into pieces
get out a large pot and cut the fat off the ends of a couple of pieces of bacon (apx 4 1/2 inch pieces)
toss in pan with a tablespoon of olive oil
turn heat to high
chop up a Vidalia (sweet) onion and toss in
allow the bacon fat to render out apx 3 to 5 mins
toss in beans
the pan should be very hot
stir beans around so that they get all incorporated in with the oil add salt, pepper & garlic powder
cook for apx 7 mins
cover with lid and turn the heat off
leave coverd for 1 hour
when you are ready to serve you may want to re-heat
These beans are so tasty theyare not cooked to death but still have that Southern taste while holding shape and tasting great!!
Everyone will LOVE!!
