I really liked the cider sauce and tend to double it. You could also use fresh green beans. I tried this on a whim b/c I love apple cider and at Thanksgiving even the veggie haters seemed to like this. If you sub apple juice the sauce will probably be OK, just without the "tang" of the cider.

Well YUM!! I used cider that I had leftover from the holidays, but I skipped the bacon. This was so easy and tasty. I'll make this again. I like that it is so different from other green bean recipes I've tried. :)
- 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen green beans
- 1 -2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 large yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup good apple cider
- 3 slices thick bacon, crisp and crumbled
- salt and pepper
- 1 dash Accent seasoning (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Cook greenbeans according to package directions to desired doneness.
- Caramelize onions in olive oil. Add cider and raise the heat to deglaze the pan. Salt sparingly and pepper, add Accent if you like. Reduce heat to a simmer and reduce until syrupy. If the sauce isn't sweet enough at this time add a bit of sugar to your taste, adjust salt and pepper as well.
- Add green beans to the sauce, toss to coat and heat through.
- Remove to a serving dish and top with bacon crumbles.
