This is a recipe from my Grandma Barbra that has been enjoyed by everyone in the family for several years. The secret in this delicious side dish, is the boiling. You must boil these for 1 hour – 60 minutes – no less. You can not just walk away and leave these either. You need to keep a close eye on them, because you will need to add about 5-6 cups of water, to the beans, over the course of the hour they are boiling. Believe me though – they are out of this world incredible!
You can use fresh green beans, frozen or canned. Just use the same amount of fresh beans, to canned or frozen. Also make sure you use the beef bouillon cubes for this recipe. They are what some consider “old-fashioned” cooking – but that is really all that will work here, for this particular recipe.
Cooked to Death Green Beans
4 (14.5 oz) cans cut green beans
2 beef bouillon cubes
Empty contents of cans into a large pot over medium heat. Do not drain the cans of green beans. If you are using fresh or frozen green beans, add 3-4 cups of water to the green beans in the pot.
Add black pepper to taste and the beef bouillon cubes, then stir.
Increase the heat to high and allow beans to boil for at least 1 hour – 60 minutes.
When ready to eat, reduce heat to medium and then serve.
