Preparation

Step 1

Snap the stem ends of the green beans, or cut them off in a big bunch with a knife if you'd prefer.

Melt bacon grease in a skillet over med-low heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for a minute. Then add the green beans and cook until the beans turn bright green, about a minute. Add chicken broth, chopped red pepper, salt and pepper to taste.

Turn the heat to low and cover the skillet with a lid, leaving the lid cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook until the liquid evaporates and the beans are fairly soft, yet still a bit crisp, 20 to 30 minutes.

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 start to caramelize.
