Recipe by Chef John
"Why take something that normally takes 5 minutes to cook and cook it for 2 hours? Because it produces one of the most delicious things you'll ever taste. There's going to be a lot of juice, and that's what you dip your corn bread into."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was the BEST green bean recipe I have ever tried! Have to admit I was somewhat skeptical of cooking time also. Not anymore! I made it for a B-B-Que we attended yesterday( doubled recipe) and used fresh green beans , tomatoes, and onions from my garden. People raved about this dish. Even people who normally don't like green beans went back for seconds!! I was asked several times for recipe . This is such a keeper!! Would give it more stars if I could! By the way, chef John is probably my favorite contributor! I love all his recipes, always right on for amount, taste, and quality.
I'm not from the South, but my late husband was, and this is THE BEST recipe I have found so far for green beans. Add potatoes half way through and fry some chicken in an iron skillet and there's your meal!! My 9 year old son and I thought they were AWESOME!! (And I'm from Chicago by the way!)
So very, very good. I followed the recipe exactly and got rave reviews. It is time consuming but so worth it. I served it with herb roasted chicken and rice pilaf.
Good recipe-- I did without tomatoes cause I didn't have it and not sure if I wanted to add tomatoes with it. I would leave out the salt or add less next time... hubbie said it was a bit salty. I don't tend to salt my food when cooking so it may be we are not use to it be salty. I used crush flake peppers instead of cayenne. Served it with some meatloaf and it was a hit with the husband!
I just finished preparing this recipe. I cooked them for 90 minutes. Absolutely delicious! Served it with brown rice.
This was absolutely incredible. We followed the directions to the T. I will make this at least once a week moving forward. I have never had better green beans. Don't be hesitant about using tomato ... the taste is excellent.
Pretty good taste.
Delish! You can never go wrong with Chef John! Didn't do the whole 2.5 hours only 1.5 due to time but still amazing! Next I might try throwing in some potatoes... Definitely going on my holiday cooking list
