Pretty much of my all time favorite home cooked meals include fresh green beans. After attempting to cook them without success for several years, I finally found a method that you can't go wrong, the crockpot!
3 cups fresh, snapped, green beans
4 cups water (or cover to where the beans are floating)
4 slices of uncooked bacon, cut into small pieces
1 small onion peeled and diced
2 beef bullion cubes
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients, cook on low for 8-10 hours. EASY! You could also add 6-8 small red potatoes for another easily cooked veggie!
