Smothered Green Beans


  • 2 Pound green beans, snipped and halved. 

  • 2 Cups water

  • 2-3 teaspoons raw cane sugar

  • 6 slices cooked bacon slices

  • ⅓-½ cup sliced almonds

  • ¼ cup fried onions garnish

  • 3 tbsp butter, lard, or oil



  1. Add water and green beans to a medium to large sauce pan, and bring water to a Boil.

  2. Stir in sugar. Now let boil until the liquid has evaporated. Minimize stirring during this time. Once or twice will do the trick. It should take around 15-20 minutes.

  3. Stir in the oil of your choice and let green beans sear for a few minutes. Then stir in chopped bacon and almonds. Let it sear a couple more minutes. Turn off the heat and top with fried onions!
