Here's What You Need
Here's What You Do
  1. Slice bacon into 1" pieces; rough chop the onions, smash, peel and rough chop the garlic. Measure out the stock, seasoning and cane syrup.
  2. Fry bacon over medium high heat until crispy and the fat has rendered.
  3. Add the onions and saute until starting to brown, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and stir well until aromatic, about 2 minutes.
  5. Still over a medium high heat, add the green beans.
  6. Sauté, stirring frequently until the green beans are starting to have a slight char.
  7. Add the creole seasoning and salt and pepper, mix well.
  8. Mix in the tomatoes and mix well with the green beans.
  9. Add the chicken stock and the cane syrup and stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  10. Bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer and cover.
  11. Simmer on low, covered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  12. After an hour, remove the cover, increase the heat to medium high and high simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce is slightly thickened.

If you don't have Louisiana Cane Syrup you can substitute molasses. But try the real deal...get it here from Amazon!

 

 

 

 

I like fresh green beans for this, but frozen works really well also. I recommend keeping them whole!

Many commercial creole seasoning blends contain salt, as does commercial chicken stock. Make sure to give the green beans a taste before adding more salt.
