This was a favorite recipe that my Dad always made for family dinners and especially Thanksgiving and Christmas traditionally. I am making sure it gets carried on by the family.

How to Make Dad's Green Beans


  • 1sauté onions, oil, and meat for 3-4 minutes then add the remaining ingredients and combine together.
  • 2cover and bring to the point of steam escaping over medium heat. Turn heat to simmer for 20 minutes. During this time do not peek.
    NOTE: This method is only one type you can use. You can also just cook it all together over medium heat with no lid. I use waterless cookware and this method is the easiest for that style. You do not need to add any liquid in either method of cooking.
