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!

How to Make Fresh Green Beans

Step-by-Step

  • 1I clean the beans in vinegar and rinse off with water. Break off tips and break in half if the beans are long. Set aside.
  • 2Cook 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.
  • 3In 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.
  • 4Let 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.
