Fresh Green Beans For Thanksgiving

Fresh Green Beans, One Way 1 lb green beans 1 cup chopped onion 2 cloves garlic 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper 2 tablespoons bacon grease (can substitute 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil) 1 cup chicken broth 1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt (can substitute regular table salt; use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon) Ground black pepper Snap the stem ends of green beans, or cut them off in a big bunch with a knife if you’d like. Just don’t tell Granny. Melt bacon grease in a skillet over medium low heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for a minute. Then add green beans and cook for a minute until beans turn bright green. Add the chicken broth, chopped red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Turn heat to low and cover with a lid, leaving lid cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until liquid evaporates and beans are fairly soft, yet still a bit crisp. You can add more chicken broth during the cooking process, but don’t be afraid to let it all cook away so the onions and peppers can caramelize. Have a wooden spoon handy to protect your fair share. Love, Pioneer Woman
