Italian green beans that simmer all day long in pork and seasonings … Well I am craving them right now!
1. Cut up your pork (or bacon) and add it to a large pot.
2. Set the pot on a medium-high heat and allow the meat to cook. You are wanting the fat to render before adding your beans.
3. Cook the meat for 8-10 minutes until the meat is browned and you have rendered all the grease.
4. Add your can of green beans with juice.
5. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of garlic salt and 1 tablespoon of pepper over the beans. Keep them handy because you may want to add more later as this cooks.
6. Stir and set the pot over medium-high heat. Cover.
7. Let it come to a boil. Once it begins to boil, turn the temperature down to low and put the cover back on.
8. You will cook this for 4 1/2 – 5 hours. Every hour or so, stir the beans and have a taste. This is when you can add more garlic salt and pepper if needed.
My immersion blender came with a small bowl and attachment that allows it to work like a food processor. I love it. It is great for small quantities such as this margarine rub for corn. I had a smidgeon of the mixture left over and used it on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
When I made this dish I originally had a run-of-the-mill stewed lentil thing in mind. Then I just let my imagination run wild, grabbing whatever sounded good from my fridge and pantry. With ingredients like pomegranate molasses, cumin, smoked paprika, and fresh mint, it ended up tasting like a Middle Eastern version of baked beans. Savory, smoky, and complex-flavored with an underlying hint of sweetness, the sauce is killer.
