Description

Fresh green beans are plentiful during the summer.  Since I am a Southern cook, I love Southern Green Beans, but they take at least an hour to prepare and simmer until extremely flavorful.  I believe these pressure cooker green beans are even more delicious and so fast to cook.


Ingredients

  • 3 pounds of fresh green beans, (fresh is better, but you can use frozen green beans)
  • 10 New potatoes, washed and cut into bite sizes (or small golden potatoes)
  • Eight pieces bacon
  • One small red onion, diced small
  • One tablespoon minced garlic
  • two cups chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
  • one teaspoon black pepper
  • Two teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning

Instructions

  • Cut eight slices of raw bacon into 2-inch pieces.  Kitchen Sheers work great for this.
  • With the pressure cooker set to browning mode, fry the bacon until hard.
  • Add the garlic and onions in the pressure cooker.
  • Saute the garlic and chopped onions until the onions are tender
  • Add the chicken broth.
  • Add seasoned salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, and sugar
  • Snap the ends off the beans and cut or snap them into 2-3 inch pieces.
  • Rinse them well
  • Cook on high pressure for 4 minutes.  If you like your green beans soft, cook 5 minutes.
  • You can do a manual release or let the pressure release on its own. It’s up to you.
  • When doing a manual release, place a towel over the release button.  The hot steam and splatters will go into the towel.
