  • 2 pounds green beans
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound bacon (cooked and crumbled)

  1. Add all ingredients to your slow cooker. 

    Optional: I reserved a few tablespoons of bacon grease from my bacon and add it to my green beans in the slow cooker. 

  2. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 4-5 hours or until green beans are tender.
