Jean-luc's green beans

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Smoked turkey wing
1 medium Yellow onion, diced
2 Garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds Fresh green beans
12 To 16 small red creamer potatoes
1 quart Water
Salt, if needed
Pepper, to taste

Chef Regina Charboneau makes these for her 2-year-old son, Jean-Luc.

Place a heavy sauce pot over medium heat and let preheat for about 3 minutes; add turkey wing, stir and turn until it begins to release some of its oil. (If pan is hot enough, you should not have a problem with sticking.) Add diced onion and stir to brown for about 3 minutes, adding garlic at end.

Add green beans, potatoes and water (enough to just cover the vegetables) then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, which may take 35 to 45 minutes, depending on size of potatoes.

Season with pepper and salt to taste (the turkey wing usually adds enough salt).

Serves 6.
