Found in the November 2008 Woman's Day magazine and thought that DBF Steve would like it as he loves green beans with vinegar. I was right! He loves it and has requested it again and again so I'm posting it here for safe keeping. Note: I am listing the recipe as it was in the magazine, but when I make it I have used a 2 pound package of frozen green beans and cook them in those new Ziploc steamer bags (from frozen) for about 5-6 minutes. I also chop the bacon before frying it.
