Are you wondering how to cook fresh green beans in the crock pot? Our favorite slow cooker green bean recipe has that delicious old fashioned flavor of bacon and onions.
15ozJar Cocktail Pearl Onionsdrained
2.5ozReal Bacon Pieces
2lbsGreen Beansfresh, washed and trimmed
Salt and Pepper to taste

We use cocktail onions and bacon bits to make this a dump and go recipe. You can fry up regular bacon and crumble and slice up a yellow onion instead if you would prefer.
You will need a large slow cooker 6 qt or larger to hold all your beans.
If you are using fresh beans from the garden you will want to wash and trim your beans beforehand. If you cannot get your hands on some fresh beans from the garden, you can oftentimes find them at the grocery store in the produce aisle.
As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
