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 have a question...do you add all ingredients together at some point? Wasn't real clear on that.
Just like my Nana used to make! I made it exactly as written except for one thing: right at the end, I added a splash of red wine vinegar to brighten it up (I do this with my slow-cooked greens as well). You can't taste the vinegar, but it makes all of the rest of the flavors pop!
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!)
This was yummy! When hubby saw it cooking he said "That looks like the beans my mom used to make"
The only thing I did different was I used fresh tomatoes peeled and seeded and run through the immersion blender. If I can use fresh I do.
Ahhhh maz ZING! I've been in search of a green bean recipe a next door neighbor used to always make and this is oh so close. I needed about 5 cups of chicken stock to cover my beans but other than that, made it exactly as directed and they turned out fantastic. Thank you for the recipe!
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.
To heck with the green beans. The sauce is excellent!! I used my home canned V6 juice instead of tomato juice and, instead of cayenne, used smoked paprika.
