"Southern Style Green Beans simmer slowly on the stovetop with bacon and onions until the fresh green beans are tender, flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! These country-style vegetables are an easy side dish to serve with smothered pork chops, chicken fried steak, roasted chicken or shrimp and grits. There's a bit of a Green Bean Debate out there: namely, whether they should be cooked-to-death-until-they're-so-tender-they're-almost-mushy or whether they're best when they're still bright green and just crisp-tender. Personally, I like the veggies both ways...I just consider them two totally different animals. Today, we're focused on southern-style green beans, which are cooked low and slow until they're fall-apart tender. These country-style beans are typically simmered in broth or water alongside a smoky meat -- such as bacon, ham hocks or smoked turkey -- as well as other seasonings. The end result is a pot of soft, richly-flavored beans that are a tasty companion for almost any entrée. "
