Smothered Country Green Beans From Chef Kevin Callaghan of Acme Food & Beverage Co.; Carrboro, North Carolina When the first ingredient in a recipe is half a cup of bacon fat, you know you’re in the South. “My grandmother’s banged-up bacon fat can was always on the bottom shelf in the refrigerator, right by the opened jars of jams and pickles,” Callaghan says. And her green beans, enriched with that fat, were always on his family’s Thanksgiving table.
Onion Strings recipe from the Pioneer Woman.... Just made them tonight - absolutely AWESOME!!! One large onion sliced on my mandolin made enough for 8 people. It was just Sean, Seany and me. We only ate about a quarter of them. We had steak and cheese subs too. Really good. Better than regular fat onion rings.
