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.
