Fresh green beans

Bacon – 3 slices bacon

Onion – 1 large onion

Garlic cloves or garlic powder – 1 clove

Chicken Broth   1  cup

Braggs Amino Acid liquid – 1/4 cup


  1. Chop the bacon into one-inch squares. Add the bacon to a very large, heavy-bottomed pot and saute it until crisp. Set the bacon aside on paper towels to drain, but retain 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the pot.  Set aside the bacon bits.
  2. Julienne the onion and saute it in the bacon grease, along with the garlic cloves, until the onions are translucent.  Do not overcook.
  3. Set Aside the sauted onions.
  4. Add the chicken broth and Braggs Amino Acid liquid to the pot and bring it to a simmer.
  5. Next add the green beans to the pot. Bring this to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer.  (You may want to snip off the ends of the green beans before cooking)
  6. Add the bacon back in along with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook the green beans until tender (or for 20 minutes).
  7. As the final touch, toss in the sauted onions, and heat for 5 minutes.
