My grandmother grew up in Kentucky on a farm. Whenever we visited, Dad would always ask for these beans. This recipe makes me feel like I am “home”.
Heat bacon grease in large saucepan on medium high heat; add beans and saute until bright green. Drain off fat.
Add the hot beef stock and onion, bring to a boil; reduce to simmer, cover. Simmer for about an hour.
Add pepper and bacon bits.
