Bacon makes everything better. Both mentally and physically. You know it must be true as bacon goes with everything. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is bacon flavored everything. Cookies, chips, tortillas, cheese, candy, breads, etc... Bacon can be found in every ethnic group. Asian, Indian, Russian, etc.. Bacon comes in every flavor under the sun. Sweet, Savory, and Peppery. Bacon is so good even vegans won't give it up as there are numerous bacon flavoring packets. So yeah, bacon.
Still in the midst of happy food over stomach food, a traditional home cooked meal was attempted. Pork chops with gravy and Great Grandma's Green Beans and Potatoes. Pork chops are fried in bacon grease, gravy is made with bacon grease, and green beans and potatoes are cooked with bacon with extra grease added for richness.
1 bag fresh green beans (12oz or so)
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 small potatoes, peeled and diced small
4 slices bacon, diced
1 cup chicken broth
1 dab butter
Salt and Pepper
To dutch oven, fry bacon extra crispy. Remove and set aside. To pot, add onion and cook till very soft. Add butter and broth and deglaze bottom of pot. Stir in potatoes, green beans, bacon, salt and pepper to taste. Cover with lid and cook until potatoes are soft.
Scaled for Likability: Good
There is not a get together at great-grandma's that does not include Great Grandma's Green Beans and Potatoes. I have seen her make them more time than I can count yet something was not right. The table counterpart disagreed with me and said they should be served more often. More often! Meals like this send general practitioners and heart doctors into orbit. Meals like this are heart attacks on a plate. Good, yes. Good for you, not a chance. Think I will leave meals like to this to visits to great-grandmas house.
If you don't like potatoes in your green beans, Nana's Famous Green Bean Recipe is very similar.
