Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon slices to a plate lined with paper towels, reserving some of the drippings in the Dutch oven.
  2. Stir onion in reserved drippings; cook and stir until browned, about 10 minutes. Stir garlic into the onion; cook until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour broth into the Dutch oven; add green beans. Chop bacon and add to the Dutch oven.
  3. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat to low, and place a cover on the Dutch oven. Simmer the green bean mixture until the beans are tender, about 1 hour. Add potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes more.

I am from Texas and love fresh green beans and red potatoes. I did this dish for Christmas dinner instead of the traditional green bean casserole. It was a hit! I'll be making this more often for sure.

I was thrilled when I found this old fashioned green bean recipe. I've never cooked fresh green beans before and I made the beans without the potatoes for Easter dinner. They have so much flavor from the bacon and garlic. This is a keeper!
