green bean recipies

Our mom made these German style beans her mom did before her..we called them " Soury beans" . they have a sweet sour taste with bacon flavouring..very tasty and resembles  hot German potato salad, which she also made. The green beans are cooked then  added to the skillet of a tangy sauce and crumbled bacon. .I think I will try some of these this year for Thanksgiving plus the traditional green bean casserole we have.

Mom's German styled green beans
  • 3 strips bacon
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 - 16 oz. can whole green beans
  • 1 tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 tbs.  vinegar
Fry bacon in skillet until crisp. Remove bacon and crumble. Drain off all but 1 tbs. drippings. Add onion and brown slightly. Stir in cornstarch, salt and dry mustard. Drain beans, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Pour bean liquid into skillet. Cook, stirring until mixture boils. Blend in brown sugar and  vinegar. Add green beans and bacon and heat thoroughly. Very easy and delicious!"

Green bean casserole
