In this paper we are concerned with the existence of stable stationary solutions for the problem $u_t = \epsilon^2(k_1^2(x) u_x)_x+k_2^2(x)g(u,x)$, $(t,x)\in\mathbb{R}^+\times (0,1)$ subject to Neumann boundary condition. We suppose that $k_1,k_2\in C^1(0,1)$ are positive functions and $g$ is an unbalanced bistable function. We prove the existence of a family of stable stationary solutions developing internal transition layers in a specific sub-interval of $(0,1)$. For this, we provide a general variational method inspired by the $\Gamma$-convergence theory.
