Southern Green Beans

WHAT ARE SOUTHERN GREEN BEANS? To be truly southern, a pot of green beans needs two things: 1 – some kind of cured meat such as bacon, salt pork, ham hocks, smoked turkey wings, etc.

2 – You have to cook the death right out of them. There’s nothing crunchy about a Southern style green bean. Not that they should be baby food either. “Tender” is really what we are shooting for here.

Heat bacon fat in a large pot over medium high heat.
