Ingredients
  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes

  • 5 slices bacon, chopped

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped

  • 12 ounces new potatoes, (4-6 small), cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups water

Directions
  1. 8 servings, about 3/4 cup each

  2. Place a Dutch oven over medium heat, add bacon and cook until slightly browned but still soft. Add beans, onions, potatoes, pepper, salt and water. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are very tender, about 1 hour. Uncover, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and most of the water has evaporated, 20 to 25 minutes more.
