Savannah restaurateur and Food Network star Paula Deen joined "Good Morning America" to whip up a few of her favorite home cooking recipes. Deen also plays Orlando Bloom's Aunt Dora in the new Cameron Crowe film, "Elizabethtown."

After the death of her parents, a young Deen was debilitated with agoraphobia, a fear of open or public spaces, for 20 years. Her recovery is based in no small part on the success of her fledgling catering company.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds fresh green beans
  • 1/4 pound salt pork, sliced
  • 1/4 cup bacon grease, pour this into a jar and keep on hand in the refrigerator to use as needed
  • 2 cups chicken broth, plus more if needed (canned is fine)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons House Seasoning
  • 12 small red potatoes, or more
  • 1 onion, cut into slivers
  • Cooking Directions

    Remove ends from the beans. Snap the beans in two, place into a colander, wash, and she aside to drain.

    Meanwhile, in a large cast-iron Dutch oven, lightly brown the salt pork in the bacon grease over medium heat, turning often, for approximately 10 minutes.

    Toss the green beans into the pot, stirring them with a wooden spoon to coat well with the pork fat. Add the stock and House Seasoning. Cook over medium-low heat, covered tightly, for approximately 30 minutes, or until the beans are half done.

    While the beans are cooking, peel a center strip from each new potato with a potato peeler. At the end of 30 minutes, add the potatoes and onion to the beans; add 1/4 cup more broth if needed. Cook, covered tightly, until the potatoes are tender, approximately 25 to 30 minutes, periodically checking the pot to make sure a small amount of liquid remains.

    When the potatoes are tender, tilt the lid slightly, off to the side of the pot, and continue to cook until the green beans are wilted, approximately 15 minutes.
