Slow Cooker Southern Style Green Beans

I had some fresh green beans from our garden. This recipe was easy to put together and the beans were still crunchy and not 'mushy' after cooking.

Slow Cooker Southern Style Green Beans

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds fresh or frozen snap green beans, rinsed and strings removed
1 medium potato, peeled, diced
3 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth), low-sodium, fat-free
Kosher or sea salt to taste

In a medium skillet saute onion and garlic on medium-low heat until tender, about 4 minutes. Add sauteed onion and garlic along with all other ingredients to the slow cooker. Recommend 5-7 quart slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low 8 hours. Cooking time may vary depending on how tender you like your green beans. Southern style green beans are typically cooked until they are falling apart.
