Perfectly Southern Green Beans proves that the vegetable side dish can be just as delectable as the main course! The green beans are crispy yet tender and infused with creole flavors. Add in plenty of bacon bits and savory taste and you have a dish no one can refuse. Perfectly Southern Green Beans require a little patience but the results must be tasted to be believed.

4 slices bacon, uncooked and sliced into small pieces
1 cup white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

Drain most of the excess fat from the pot, reserving 1 teaspoon at the bottom.

Step 4

Add in the onions and garlic to the reserved fat and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Step 5

Add in the chicken broth, and deglaze the pot with a wooden spatula, scraping up the bits of cooked bacon.

Step 6

Add in the green beans, creole seasoning, salt, and pepper, and stir.

Step 7

Reduce the heat to low.

Step 8

Cover and cook until the green beans are tender, about 1 hour-1 hour 30 minutes.
