Ingredients

  • 6 red potatoes, unpeeled, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 handfuls of fresh green beans, tails off, cut in half
  • 1/2 or more lb bacon or side pork
  • Water, the amount necessary to cover your vegetables for cooking
  • Milk, an equal amount with the water
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cut up your beans and potatoes and cover with water. Begin cooking. Cook bacon or side pork and add to cooking vegetables. Traditionally, people might throw it right into the broth but it is browned better if you cook it separately. When vegetables are done, add milk - the amount which would double the amount of water left. I add butter, salt and pepper. Serve with fry bread. Absolutely delicious!!


Note: I'm white and learned this by watching. I saw the recipe prepared by an Onondaga woman on Cattraugus Reservation at Seneca Nation.
