  • 2 lbs fresh green beans
  • 2 slices bacon or 1 ham hock
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • salt and pepper


  1. In pot cover green beans with water and boil till tender with potatoes and bacon (or ham hock); drain.
  2. Add your favorite seasoning (I like butter, salt, and pepper).
  3. Remember ham hocks take a little longer than green beans, so if you use a ham hock, boil it first till tender then add the rest and cook.
