Sometimes simple is best; like here we've got fresh green beans and red potatoes boiled up with a little salt pork. Steamin' Taters 'n' Beans is a Southern classic that combines great flavor with ease.
What You'll Need:
1 (2-ounce) piece salt pork, (see note)
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
12 small red potatoes (about 2 pounds), cut in half
2 teaspoons salt
What To Do:
1. In a large pot, combine salt pork, green beans, and pepper with enough water to cover. Place potatoes on top and sprinkle with salt. Cover loosely and bring to a boil over high heat.
2. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 to 35 minutes, or until potatoes and beans are tender. Serve in bowls with broth.
Note: Three slices of raw bacon will work just as well as salt pork.
