Add in the onions and garlic to the reserved fat and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Add in the chicken broth, and deglaze the pot with a wooden spatula, scraping up the bits of cooked bacon.
Add in the green beans, creole seasoning, salt, and pepper, and stir.
Reduce the heat to low.
Cover and cook until the green beans are tender, about 1 hour-1 hour 30 minutes.
Taste for seasoning, and serve.
