How to Make Green Beans in the Crockpot
Vegetable Prep. Chop up green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, onions and garlic. There’s no need to peel the potatoes so don’t worry about that!
Cook a couple slices of bacon and then chop it into smaller bite size pieces. I usually cook the bacon in the microwave to make it quick.
