If you ever run out of garden fresh green beans or garden canned beans and hate them out of a tin can try this trick to bring out the southern taste straight from a tin can
Just drain your family size can Of green beans get you a cast iron skillet with some butter salt and pepper and fry them.. that’s right. Pan fry them .. salt and pepper them and let them go until they are completely wilted down in volume
Note: When frying them I use butter when frying them because I use no water and I don’t want them too greasy but a smidge of good bacon grease or fat will work as well if you prefer

Do you use high heat & brown them, or medium & cover?·

Serena Ellison

I don’t cover them.. when I was making these I just let them go as I was fixing my other foods.. I was frying chicken as well on another burner so I would occasionally use the spatula to turn them so they didn’t blacken.. I guess it was medium high heat for the most part and as they began to wilt down in volume I gradually turned the heat down and eventually off.

    That’s how I make my garden and store bought. Sooooo good! I’ve always called them granny beans.

    I use a lot more volume of beans if from garden so I like to use a CI Dutch oven with lid for those. This old fashioned way is definitely a good one too.. both methods are super simple tried and true recipes. I love your name you gave it .. I think I’ll use that “Granny Beans” haha 😂

    My mom use to do that too. That is also how she cooked pickled beans. Have you ever tried putting a beef or chicken boullion cube in them?
