A good friend of mine, Turk, brought me these last night. He is the one that is crazy about my Maple sausage & bacon.
He buys it up ever time that I make it.

This has got to be one of my favorite side dishes. Heck, I've even made a meal paired with fresh sweet corn.
I started off by washing the beans and taters and quartering the red onion.




Added Lard, Bacon and Liquid.



Cooked for 14 hours on low.



I gotta have a taste.



They're done. Where's my corn? OOPS. Gotta go to the store.

Fresh Green Beans and New Taters

2 pounds Fresh Green Beans, snapped and stemmed
1 pound Fresh New Potatoes, small whole ones or quarter
1 Large Red Onion, quartered
5 Cups Water
3 Tbsp Lard
5 tsp Chicken Base
4 strips thin sliced Bacon
Pepper to taste (1/4 tsp of Malibar)

Wash and clean the fresh veggies.
Quarter the Red Onion.
Place in Crock-Pot.
Combine Water and Chicken Base.
Cut Bacon Slices into 1" pieces and place in Crock-Pot.
Pour liquid mixture over the top.
Add Lard.
Stir.
Cover and set Crock-Pot to low.
Stir every couple hours.
Cook 12-14 hours.
Enjoy!

Note: You may use Chicken Broth instead of water and Base. Check and adjust salt level to taste.

Thanks for lookin' and enjoy with your next cook.

That looks delicious!! It looks very simple, too.
More often than not, simple is the best tasting. Very Happy

BTW, I think you are in need of a sticky for your BBQ beans thread.
It was nice to see Roxy get his first ...... or was it his second ....
I don't know .... maybe I lost count. Shocked Laughing Laughing Wink

Thanks Mac. The good ole KISS ways usually turn out better than some fancy restaurants make.
I can't believe I ate the whole thing yesterday. It was supposed to last through today. Shocked

If I get a sticky, does that mean that I get a Pay Raise? Laughing Laughing Laughing
Thanks for the vote.

gonna have to make this for my husband. Looks really tasty.

Just a question though...do I need the lard? Wouldn't the bacon add enough grease?

Manana, I've come to know & love John's recipes....
When Jarhead sats use a couple of tablespoons of that 'heart-healthy' lard, he usually means....

.....use a couple of tablespoons of that 'heart-healthy' lard

Disclaimer: He may write in & tell you different, but as far as I know the stuff just won't come out the same without it..... Very Happy

Thanks Manana. Lard is good for you and helps the dish out immensely. I've done it without and it don't taste the same.
My Mom always made it with salt pork, I'll guess about 1/2 pound of it, chunked up.

Thanks Ken.

Had my first sweet corn from my farm last night. Have about 1/2 acre planted and really had to search for some ears that were close to being ready. Your beans and taters look great! 2 of my 3 favorite veggies!

Thank You Millstream.
I wish we had some fresh "anything" around here.
Seems like all of the gardens have dried up.
This is going to be the driest July in recorded history.

I'm in Northern Pa. We were 5 1/2 inches behind for the summer. We've gotten 3 1/2 in the last 7 days, with more heavy rain for this weekend. Getting kinda soggy out in some of the fields right now. We just can't win this year...
