We grew up on all sorts of fresh vegetables from the garden my dad and mon planted each year. There is nothing like fresh green beans. I always have to buy a big bag full in order to last in my house. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

3-4 lb
fresh green beans, wash, tips off and break in half
1 large
onion chopped
3-4
pieces of turkey or pork bacon cooked crispy
3 clove
fresh garlic chopped
1/4 tsp
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
3+ Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1-2 pkg
herb ox sodium free granulated chicken bouillon
1-2 c
chicken broth/stock

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I clean the beans in vinegar and rinse off with water. Break off tips and break in half if the beans are long. Set aside.
2
Cook the bacon until crispy, but not overdone. You can also use cooked ham for this recipe by browning the ham in a little olive oil.
3
In a large pot, cook onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for a few minutes, add the fresh garlic and continue cooking until tender. Add the 2 packages of Herb Ox chicken bouillon to the onions and garlic and stir well. Add about 2 cups of the chicken broth/stock to the onions. Once it comes to a boil, add your green beans, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, turn heat down to medium.
4
Let the beans cook about half an hour and stir a few times, then add your meat by crumbling the bacon pieces or the chopped ham, stirring a few times during cooking. Add a drizzle of olive oil and cook until tender.
