Amish Green Beans

Submitted by: BUN3KIN

Introduction

The green beans that my grandma used to make. She got the recipe from an Amish friend in Mt. Hope, Ohio.

I replaced the bacon fat with olive oil, to make it a bit more healthy.

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 lb green beans (You can use frozen - just be sure to thaw and drain)
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic
    1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

If using fresh green beans, snap the ends and wash.

In a large saucepan or skillet, cook garlic and onions in olive oil. Cook until just soft - 1-2 minutes. Add green beans and cook until beans turn bright green, about 1 minute. Add chicken broth, red pepper, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to low and cover. Crack lid to allow steam to escape. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until liquid evaporates.

Enjoy!
