Southern Style Green Beans

2 pounds fresh green beans

1 medium onion, diced

3 tablespoons bacon drippings*

1 cup chicken broth (water will work fine too)

1 teaspoon salt


Rinse beans in cold water.  Snap the ends off the beans then snap each bean into 2-inch pieces.  Set aside.


Heat bacon drippings in a large skillet over medium-high heat (feel free to just chop up some bacon and cook it down a little with the onions rather than just using the drippings).  Add onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes.  Add beans and continue sautéing for an additional 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.


Add beans and onions to a medium-sized saucepan.  Add chicken broth and salt, stir to combine, then cover and cook over medium-low heat for one hour, stirring occasionally.


*Substitute vegetable or olive oil for bacon drippings if necessary then ask the Lord for forgiveness for throwing away your bacon grease.
