It was ok, but I find canned beans to be colorless and limp. I fried the bacon until almost crisp; poured off the oil reseving 1 tablespoon. Then saute'd the onion until transluscent. I added fresh green beans cut into 1-1/2 inch lengths. I added 2 tsp of sugar, garlic salt, pepper and red wine vinegar. Covered the pan, and simmered until beans were crisp tender. Off the heat I sprinkled the bacon bits on top.
These tasted wonderful, and they are not quite finished yet (still a lot of juice). I am trying to go low carb and also searching for another side for Xmas, and this is it. VERY quick and easy and is certainly going to satisfy the three of us who are looking for a bit healthier. I may try adding a little red wine vinegar or balsamic before I'm done, but right now, delicious.
Simple and tasty. Thanks Dienia for another nice keeper. Made for Went to the Market Tag.
What a delicious, simple, recipe! I really enjoyed the easiness of it. And it tasted very good. I will most definitely make this again. Thank you! PS I did add just a teeny bit of salt along with the pepper.
I make this at least once a week but I skip frying the bacon and chopping/frying the onion. Instead, I use dry onion flakes and a tablespoon or so of Hormel real bacon bits (cuts down on grease and fat content). They always turn out fabulous. Oh and using some leftover keilbasa or cooked beef sausage works great too as a replacement for the bacon. My mil doesn't eat pork so she just skips the meat altogether when she makes this and it's still great!
I made this exactly as written, with the exception of using 2 pints of canned green beans from the garden, even including the liquid from them. My sons who HATE green beans proclaimed these the best they'd ever eaten. I was afraid with only a tad of pepper that they would not be seasoned to our taste...but not a granule of anything is needed! Thanks for posting the perfect way to use store bought or home canned beans! Made for ZWT3.
I made this last night. It ewas excellent. Every one ate it up. I used Fresh beans steamed in a little chicken stock, and I also added fresh mushrooms, and finished with some freshly shaved Parmesan Reggiano. Thanks for the posting.
Used frozen green beans. When almost done, I thickened the juices with a tiny bit of cornstarch; then added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice plus a tablespoonful of chopped fresh parsley to dress it up. Reminds me of my German Oma's way of cooking green beans. Thanks for a keeper.
YUM!! My husband doesn't even like green beans and he ate them! I sprinkled parmisan cheese over the top of them and the were DELICIOUS!
For most part I like my beans plain and simple. Needing to dress up a meal I made up this recipe. It rates a five for a side dish that is so easily made, and tastes as good as it looks. I can hardly wait to be trying this when I have garden fresh beans! Thank you dienia for sharing this delightful recipe.
