SOUTHERN BEANS WITH SMOKED TURKEY NECKS AND POTATOES
There is no doubt about it: people love simple, delicious meals that are also inexpensive. And today’s Southern green beans mixed with potatoes, smoked turkey, and garlic. Everything about this dish is wonderful. To make my green bean dinners, I typically utilize affordable ingredients and my southern green bean dishes are always easy to prepare.
I’d be happy to show you a new method to prepare my green beans and potatoes. This time, I’m going to use smoked turkey! Start by boiling some water and adding some smoked turkey legs to it. I remove the turkey from the water after it has cooked until it is tender and shred or dice the flesh according to your desire. I DO NOT DISPOSE OF THE WATER! As a result of cooking the turkey in the water, it already has a savory taste to it, so I utilize it instead. Actually, I threw the green beans into the “broth,” along with diced potatoes and onions, and smoked turkey. Finally, I let everything simmer for a bit to mellow it all out.
ALL INGREDIENTS REQUIRED FOR TODAY’S RECIPE ARE LISTED BELOW:
- Fresh trimmed green beans, you’ll need 2 Lbs.
- Smoked turkey legs, I used 1 pound.
- Minced garlic; use a large spoon.
- Chopped onion; I used a medium-sized one.
- Peeled and diced potatoes; 4 to 5 medium-sized.
- 2 t spoons.Of seasoning salt.
- 1 t spoon.Of ground black pepper.
