Ingredients

1 large
bunch of fresh green beans, cleaned and snapped
1 large
onion, halved and sliced thin
1 bunch
green onions, sliced thin
1 medium
green bell pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp
bacon grease
3-4 c
chicken stock
1/4 c
beer (or more to taste)
1/2 lb
ham seasoning
1 Tbsp
dried parsley
1-2 tsp
creole seasoning
1 Tbsp
fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp
salt
8-10 small
new potatoes, washed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large soup pot add all ingredients except potatoes - heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil. You want to have enough liquid to just barely cover the beans. Reduce heat and simmer another 2 - 3 hours.
2
Check for seasoning and adjust as needed. If it tastes a little salty it's OK, the potatoes will soak some of that up. The beans should be very tender and beginning to fall apart.
3
Add the new potatoes and push them down into the beans so that they're covered with liquid. If more liquid is needed add more chicken stock or water.
4
Raise heat to medium and bring liquid to a boil - cover and boil for 20 minutes or until potatoes are done. Taste again and adjust seasoning as needed. Enjoy!

NOTES: The beer and the bacon grease make all the difference in the taste so don't leave that out.
