1 large onion, chopped 

2 pounds green beans, trimmed 

Three 14.5-ounce cans whole tomatoes with juice 

Salt and black pepper

Salt and black pepper

  1. Add the bacon to a large Dutch oven and cook over medium heat until light golden (not crisp). Drain off the excess fat.

  3. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.
