These slow cooker garlic green beans are flavorful and perfectly seasoned. My husband thought they were the best thing ever. A literal quote, “Those are the best beans I’ve ever eaten in my life.” They were still fairly crisp, which is how I prefer them. This is a simple and easy recipe that can be made ahead of time for a family dinner.
Makes 6 servings
1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 packed tsp minced garlic (about 2-3 cloves)
bacon bits (optional)
1. Place an oven safe dish that fits inside your slow cooker in the bottom of the slow cooker (I have a corningware dish that is 1.6 liters).
2. Place green beans inside dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Stir in the salt and pepper and garlic.
3. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours or on HIGH for 1-2. Remove dish from slow cooker and serve directly from it. Top with bacon bits, if desired.
