Look! I took pictures of food!

Another Pioneer Woman find:

Fresh Green Beans, One Way

1 lb green beans
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic (I ended up adding some powder towards the end, they weren't garlicy enough for me)
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons bacon grease (can substitute 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil - I did!)
1 cup chicken broth (I used FF)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt (can substitute regular table salt; use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon)
Ground black pepper

Snap the stem ends of green beans, or cut them off in a big bunch with a knife if you’d like. Just don’t tell Granny. Melt bacon grease in a skillet over medium low heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for a minute. Then add green beans and cook for a minute until beans turn bright green. Add the chicken broth, chopped red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Turn heat to low and cover with a lid, leaving lid cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until liquid evaporates and beans are fairly soft, yet still a bit crisp. You can add more chicken broth during the cooking process, but don’t be afraid to let it all cook away so the onions and peppers can caramelize.

About a quarter way through

And that's it for the pictures! No, I didn't get the finished product, but hey, at least I took some pictures! I served them with some grilled boneless pork chops and wild rice (had leftovers from the night before).
