Green Beans With Bacon

The longer cooking in this recipe is typical for southern style green beans, and the bacon adds great flavor. This is an excellent way to cook fresh green beans.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 Minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

  • 6 ounces bacon, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, scrubbed, trimmed, and cut in 3-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • salt and pepper


Put the bacon in a large saucepan with the chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and cook for 20 minutes. Add the trimmed and sliced green beans, along with the onion and sugar. Cover and continue cooking for about 30 minutes longer, or until the green beans are tender.
