Green Beans and Baby Red Potatoes

I'm not usually a big fan of green beans, but toss them with some baby red potatoes, bacon, and onion and you've got a winner!  This side dish pairs perfectly with most any meat choice and can be thrown together quickly.  Allow it to cook slowly while you prepare the rest of your meal and enjoy!


2 pounds fresh green beans
6 medium red potatoes, cut into eighths
3 slices of bacon, coarsely chopped
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup chicken broth
1 tsp garlic, minced
Seasoned salt and pepper to taste

Heat a large pan over medium heat.  Add the bacon and cook until it just begins to brown and most of the fat is rendered.  Add the sliced onion and saute until translucent.  Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, approximately 30 seconds.

Add the potatoes, beans, and broth to the pan.  If the broth does not cover the beans and potatoes, add enough water until they are covered.  Bring the mixture to a boil.

Season with salt and pepper to taste, turn the heat to low, cover and simmer.  Cook for 40-45 minutes,stirring occasionally, or until beans are tender.  Taste and readjust seasonings as needed.
