Crock Pot Frozen Green Beans

So a while back I posed the question “How do you cook your frozen green beans in the crock pot?”
I eat lots of frozen veggies…. all the time really. We love frozen broccoli. I use a lot of frozen onions, carrots and peppers in stews and soups. And I always have frozen corn and brussel sprouts on hand.
There has just been something about the taste of the frozen green beans that I did not like. Even Miss Maddy (who LOVES green beeans… even makes green bean sandwiches) would not eat the frozen green beans that I would cook.
Once I asked the question I got a lot of good responses….. but it seemed it was all things that I had tried before. So as a last resort I tried the only thing I hadn’t. OH MY GAWSH!!! They were so good and everybody ate them up.

Here is how I did it:

  • 10 ounce package of frozen green beans, THAWED
  • chicken stock (about two cups)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of seasoning salt

The most important step in this process is to thaw your frozen green beans. I just laid mine in the fridge overnight to do this.
Now you’re going to rinse the green beans very well.

Place them in a 1 1/2 quart crock pot. Add the salt and chicken stock, making sure the chicken stock covers them completely.
Cook on low 6 – 7 hours or on high for 3 – 4 hours.

These were super delicous and didn’t have any kind of funky freezer taste to them. The simple step of thawing and rinsing them made all the differnce in the world.

  1. The whole process sounds sensible to me, so I’m going to give it a whirl during the next week. I’m from the South and used to grow and can my own beans, but now I live smack in the middle of the Mojave Desert, thus no green beans are growing out back around here. Thanks for the recipe.
