A few years ago, we lived near an elderly neighbor named Wayne. He was a neat old guy who tended a very nice garden and knew a lot of the "old timey" ways of living. He also liked to cook and shared the basis of this recipe with me. Here goes....... Wayne's Green Beans.
I started out with broiling some of the wild boar I harvested last fall. After it cooled a bit, I pulled the meat from the bone.
I sauteed an onion with five cloves of garlic and three stalks of celery in a dutch oven with a little salt and olive oil till the onion goes translucent but not carmelized.
Next add some meat broth. We are very frugal with broth from roasts and boiled meat. We freeze and save it for use in other recipes. In this case the broth is from a past boar (pork) roast prepared with red wine, garlic and onion.
Next comes the addition of the green beans and a couple sprigs of fresh rosemary.
Finally, I added the pulled, roasted boar and some bacon chunks.
Bring to a light boil for 15 minutes to cook green beans, then add chunked red potatoes and cook another 10 minutes till potatoes are tender.
Serve and enjoy.
Oh, and here's the Coronita I was drinking while cooking
