Slow Cooker Green Beans
I love to have a garden. And I enjoy growing a variety of items that allow me fresh vegetables all summer long. My kids love to build bean trellis’s for the beans to grown up and to make it easier to see the beans hanging. I just love how much easier it is to pick the beans and I have more space for other vegetables.
Greens beans fresh from the garden are great in the slow cooker. Just a few other items and allow the beans to cook slowly on LOW until they are ready.
Substitutions are possible for this recipe. Canned green beans can be used in place of fresh. I would use at least three cans of beans and drain them of the water first. You can also use frozen green beans too of course, the same amount of green beans as fresh in this case.
This would make a nice addition to a meal. I know some question why you would want to cook vegetables in a crock-pot verses the stove. I can say that there are times where my stove has more pans on it then burners (or it seems like it) and using a crock-pot on a counter just makes less work for me.
