Flavorful and succulent, these green beans perfectly compliment the Stuffed Pork Tenderloin,
as well as uses some of the extra ingredients!
The Good: This is a simple recipe that goes perfect as a side dish (especially with the Stuffed Pork from yesterday!)
The Bad: The recipe says you may need a little extra water, we used at least 4x's the amount!
The Ugly: Watch your water level closely. If it gets too low your onions and garlic will burn.
Suggestions before starting:
Keep a large sum of water nearby and ready to add.
To render just means to melt the fat.
If you are not sure if the beans are done... well try one. You are the best judge for what you like!
