Smothered Green Beans with New Potatoes

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/smothered_green_beans.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2012

This green bean recipe from chef Alex Patout of Landry’s restaurant in New Iberia, Louisiana, gets plenty of flavor from bacon and onions.

8 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 50 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place a Dutch oven over medium heat, add bacon and cook until slightly browned but still soft. Add beans, onions, potatoes, pepper, salt and water. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are very tender, about 1 hour. Uncover, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and most of the water has evaporated, 20 to 25 minutes more.
