Fresh green beans pressure cooked with potatoes, tomatoes, onions, and bacon.
Recipe type: Vegetables
Serves: 6
  • 2 pounds fresh green beans
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 medium red or other waxy potato, cut into quarters
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into eighths
  • 4 strips of bacon, cut into ½ inch strips
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • ⅓ cup chicken stock, vegetable stock, or water
  1. Rinse the green beans. Snap off both ends and leave whole or cut in half.
  2. Brown bacon strips in a pressure cooker until browned and crispy. Remove bacon bits to a plate lined with a paper towel. Set aside. Drain off bacon grease, but leave about 1-2 Tablespoons for the onions.
  3. Add chopped onion to the pot. Cook for 8-10 minutes over medium heat, until onions are translucent and beginning to brown.
  4. Layer ½ of the green beans on top of the cooked onions.
  5. Layer all of the potatoes.
  6. Layer remaining ½ of the green beans.
  7. Layer the tomatoes. Sprinkle with bacon bits. Add salt, pepper, and chicken stock.
  8. Put the lid on the pressure cooker. Lock the lid. Maintain medium heat, until steam begins to vent from the top of the lid. Place the pressure regulator. Bring the pressure cooker to 10 pounds of pressure. Reduce heat to medium-low or temperature to maintain 10 pounds pressure.
  9. Cook for 12 minutes.
  10. Turn off the heat or remove the intact pressure cooker from the burner. Wait until all the pressure is released from the cooker. This might take 10-15 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
  11. Pour the beans into a bowl and serve.
If you're not familiar with pressure cookers, follow all manufacturer's directions for safe operation.
