Green beans were once called string beans. This Slow Cooker Green Bean recipe is a southern dish, and we all know how good southern dishes are, these beans are so YUMMY!

  1. Wash and clean your green bean, cutting out any spots you need to. Snapping them if they are fresh beans.
  2. Saute onion and garlic on medium-low heat until tender, about 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer sauteed onion and garlic along with all other ingredients to a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
  4. Cover. Cook on Low for 8 hours.

NOTE: If you like your beans with some snap, you will not crock them as long.

Optional: If you need to make less beans for a meal, simply cut in half and use a 3-5 quart slow cooker.

Happy Crocking!
