Step 1

Snap the stem ends of green beans, or cut them off in a big bunch with a knife if you’d like. Melt bacon grease or butter in a skillet over medium low heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for a minute.

Step 2

Add green beans and cook for a minute until beans turn bright green. Then add the chicken broth, chopped red pepper, salt, and black pepper.

Step 3

Turn heat to low and cover with a lid, leaving lid cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until liquid evaporates and beans are fairly soft, yet still a bit crisp. You can add more chicken broth during the cooking process, but don’t be afraid to let it all cook away so the onions and peppers can caramelize.
