Slow Cooker Southern Green Beans

Updated: Feb 3, 2021

This is my all time favorite way to eat green beans. They are soft, buttery, bacon-y, and remind me of home. They are easy to make, but do require a bit of time, so instead of doing this on the stove I use the slow cooker.

This is one of the only ways I eat green beans. I've never been a huge crispy almond green bean type, which is probably due to being raised in the south (Though open to suggestions 🤗). I also think that green beans are sadly an underused vegetable. This could be in part due to the preparation of trimming each bean, so usually I buy pre-trimmed beans if I'm short for time.

I usually make this with potato salad or mac and cheese and a steak or pork chop, but you can pair it with almost anything. If you love this recipe, share it! Drop a comment below, follow on Facebook or Instagram, and Pinterest. Enjoy!
