"This is a very simple recipe that tastes great. Put your beans on in early morning and let them cook all day. Handed down by my Grandma who came from a pretty poor family. Goes great with cornbread."

  1. Place the green beans in a large saucepan with a lid or a slow cooker. Pour water over the beans to cover; stir in salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the beans are very tender, 3 to 4 hours; add water throughout the cooking time as needed to keep moist.
  2. Add the smoked sausage and potatoes; cover and simmer until the potatoes are very tender and the beans and potatoes have absorbed the smoky flavor of the sausage, about 2 more hours.

I grew up on this recipe. Love it! We cook ours in a crock pot on low. The idea is to get the sausage flavor into the green beans and the potatoes. The extra time allows the potatoes to cook...

Green beans turned into mush with the long cooking time--a waste of perfectly good fresh beans.

Wasn't sure how to rate because I make this (with an onion added) in my pressure cooker. About 15 minutes once the pressure cooker is singing. I have even used canned green beans on a busy eveni...

Okay. I make this all the time. But I figured I would put some tips on here. I cook my beans all day because we like them soft. If you want them firm only cook for about 4-5 hours. Cook the in...

This is one of my DH and DS favorite meals. I made it on the stovetop rather than the crock-pot because of time restraints. I did add an onion to the mix.

I wasn't expecting much from this recipes as it was fairly simple. The only thing I added was onion because my family likes it. I will say the first day I made it, no one ate any because it wa...

I grew up on a dish similar to this only we used smoked pork shoulders or cuts like that. Bacon fat was thrown in for good measure.A dish always full of flavor and very often used as Sunday dinn...

I made this because my husband grew up eating fresh green beans that were slow cooked all day. I personally don't care for mushy green beans. I followed the recipe exactly except for when the be...
