Betty's Success Tip
Southern "string" beans are traditionally simmered in a ham broth made with a ham bone or ham hock until tender and very flavorful. They're considered a real treat in the South. This recipe uses smoked ham or pork chops because they're easier to find.
Serving Suggestion
Serve this summertime southern side dish with fried chicken, fresh lemonade and coconut layer cake. It's like having a picnic at your dining room table.
