Awesome Green Beans

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by diner524

I grew up eating these green beans and learned to cook them by watching my mother. They are my favorite way to eat green beans. Edit: This is a recipe for people that like a tangy vinegar flavor, most kids won't like it. I make this for the adults and just buttered beans for my kids.

Excellent. I've never used the vinegar in my green beans and really like the additional flavor. This went very well with roast beef, potatoes and carrots. Thanks for sharing. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) can green beans (I use french style- absorbs the flavor best)
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 12 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 -3 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (depending on the amount of vinegar flavor you like)


  1. Put a medium skillet on stove and heat to medium.
  2. Add the bacon and cook till crisp, then remove to paper towel, keep bacon fat in skillet.
  3. Add onions and saute till lightly brown.
  4. Add green beans(undrained or just partially drained).
  5. Add vinegar and cook on medium- low until liquid is evaporated. Taste the beans and add salt and pepper if needed, but remember the bacon is salty!
  6. Then serve with bacon sprinkled on top.
