I cut the bacon and onion into small pieces, brown them in a pan. When the bacon is almost cooked the onions should be soft, I pour coke in the bottom and scrape all of the drippings from the bottom of the pan. Open & drain the green beans add to pan. Cover the beans with the coke. Add the spices. cook on low for a couple hours. In the crock pot I cook them all day. They are the best. People ask me for the recipe all of the time!
