Do you remember the flavor of your Gramma’s green beans? Well, that is exactly what you get with these delicious Crock Pot Green Beans!
Aunt Lou here.
Gramma has been gone now for 7 months. It seems like forever since I have seen her smile and felt her hugs. Here lately I have been thinking about her a lot and grasping at every memory I have of her for comfort. One of the things that instantly makes me think of her and smile is the smell of green beans cooking. I don’t know how to explain it. As soon as I smell green beans on, I am instantly transported. It is a hot summer day, early afternoon, and I am walking into Gramma’s house and greeted with that wonderful smell and dying to get a taste!
Crock Pot Green Beans
Sadly, Gramma was already in the nursing home before I took up any interest in cooking…beyond eating. 😉 So I don’t know exactly what Gramma put in her green beans (I bet Cris knows), but these puppies are about as close as I’ve ever had.
*Note: If it is summer and you can get some fresh green beans and break them yourself, DO IT! That will take this recipe to the next level for sure!
Psst…if you want to make them faster, you can make them in your Instant Pot too with this Instant Pot Green Beans recipe!

For these yummy Crock Pot Green Beans, I used my 3 qt crock pot. You can use your favorite 3 quart slow cooker and reminisce about the good ol’ days in Gramma’s kitchen.
