Green Beans and Tomatoes

IMG_4905  This is such a great side dish.  It is very popular in the South.  The first time that I had it was in Louisville, Kentucky on Kentucky Derby weekend.  It quickly became one of my favorites.


1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans

1/4 c. diced onions

chicken stock

1 T. butter

1 t. minced garlic



5 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 large tomato, diced


Steam green beans and onions in chicken stock until green beans are tender, but not soft.  Drain green beans.  In pan, put all remaining ingredients along with the green beans.  Cook until flavors are well mixed.  Enjoy!
