Southern Style Green Beans

Southern style green beans are cooked "low and slow" with a meat to "season" it (often cured, salt pork like bacon, "streak of lean," side meat, country ham, and/or a ham hock (for large pots of beans only)) until they are super tender and infused with the flavor of the meat. Different seasoning meats lend different flavors to the dish, but they are all wonderful, so I encourage you to experiment and discover which you like best.
