Ingredients:  
2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed

1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 cups chicken broth

Directions:
Cooked bacon in skillet until almost crisp. Add onion; cook until soft and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato sauce. Cook until garlic has softened, about 1 minute.

Place green beans into skillet and add chicken broth. Raise heat to high, add salt, pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1Ĺ hours. Stir occasionally. Add more broth or water if necessary.

Cook until beans are soft and tender. Sometimes I even transfer to a crockpot and cook very low all day.

The tomato sauce is the secret ingredient - if you donít have any, can substitute with tomato paste, tomato juice or even ketchup!
