Crockpot Green Beans and Potatoes Recipe Cooking Instructions
On a cutting board, slice the potatoes in quarters to make sure they cook quicker and more even.
In a large mixing bowl, toss together green beans, potatoes, olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper until well coated.
Add the potatoes to the crockpot.
Add water or some vegetable broth to your crockpot. I like to add a little more flavor into my potatoes so I opt for vegetable broth, but water works just fine.
Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the potatoes are starting to soften up.
Now, add the green beans to the recipe and cook for an additional hour until potatoes are fork-tender and the beans are soft but maintain a slight crunch to them.
Taste the recipe and adjust the seasoning as needed.
