#3725 - Amish Green Beans

(by Shirley McNevich)

6 raw slices of bacon (chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1lb. fresh green beans
2 large tomatoes (chopped)
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Fill a pot with cold water and set it aside. Wash the green beans, remove the stems and cut the green beans into 2" pieces. Place the green bean pieces into a pot of boiling salted water--cook/stir them for 5 minutes, then drain them in a colander and immediately drop all of them into the pot of cold water (to stop them from cooking). Drain the green beans again. In large cast iron skillet add the chopped bacon and chopped onions--cook/stir over medium heat until bacon is crisp and onions are tender. Add the drained green beans, chopped tomatoes, chopped garlic, salt and black pepper--cook/stir 8-10 minutes or until green beans are tender and mixture is hot.

My all-time fave way to eat green beans - I live in Lancaster County and it tastes EVEN better than any green beans I ever had at an Amish-type buffet restaurant!
