If you're looking for green bean recipes, there's a good chance you'll stumble on a Southern interpretation of this soulful side. Our version uses fresh green beans and potatoes, but we have a fun trick—we peel a thin strip around the middle of each potato before cooking for textural contrast and pretty presentation.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a 5-quart saucepan over medium-high. Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender, about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Add stock, salt, and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a steady simmer. Simmer 10 minutes or until the potatoes are just tender enough to be pierced with a fork but still firm.

Step 3

Add green beans, cover, and simmer until very tender, about 6 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the potatoes and green beans to a serving dish. Bring the liquid to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1 cup, about 6 minutes. Spoon over the vegetables, and gently fold to mix. Serve hot.
