Southern-Style Green Beans and Potatoes
Boiling fresh beans for an hour? It sounds old-fashioned, but the velvety beans and flavor-packed broth are worth the time.
Why This Recipe Works
This Southern classic combines green beans with red potatoes stewed together in a savory pot liquor. In order to amp up the pot liquor, we flavor it with two smoky ham hocks and use a hefty dose of salt. Adding the potatoes partway through cooking and leaving the lid on the pot the whole time provides us with evenly cooked potatoes and silky-smooth green beans.
