Tried this one to get my 5 year old to eat more vegetables. Quite easy and an alternative to just plain old beans out of a can. Of course fresh green beans can be substituted.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown bacon in medium skillet.
  2. When the fat begins to render, add onions and cook until tender.
  3. Add the beans, vinegar and sugar.
  4. Continue cooking until most of vinegar has reduced and sugar is melted.
  5. Stir frequently.

This was just a little too sweet and sour for our tastes. We thought the vinegar and sugar totally overwhelmed the taste of the green beans. If I make this again, I'll cut down on the amounts of sugar and vinegar.

This is a Tried and True Recipe. A great side dish for your favorite meat. The blend of vinegar, sugar and bacon adds a sweet and sour taste. Thanks for a great recipe.
