Arkansas Green Beans

  • 5 (15-ounce) cans of green beans, drained (I’ve also substituted a couple cans of wax beans for a little variety in color)
  • 12 slices bacon (cooked until slightly crispy, then cut into large pieces)
  • 2/3 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 C butter, melted
  • 7 tsp soy sauce (or 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp)
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (Note: I’ve successfully made these several times in a foil pan on the grill). Place the drained green beans in a 9×13 pan.  Sprinkle with the cooked bacon pieces.  Combine the sugar, butter, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a small bowl.  Pour over the green beans and bacon.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  Remove from oven and serve.
