- 2 quarts Smoky Pork Stock
- 3 pounds pole beans or large green beans, strings removed
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- In a large saucepan, bring the Smoky Pork Stock to a boil. Add the beans, pushing them down into the stock, and return to a boil. Cover and simmer until tender, 30 to 45 minutes for true pole beans. Drain the beans and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot
The beans can be cooked 1 day ahead and reheated in the stock before serving.
