Dressed up and tasty combination of tomato, garlic, onion, and bacon make this a sure hit anytime!
- 2 -15 ounces French style green beans or 2 -15 ounces regular cut green beans
- 1 small onion, cut in slivers
- 1 plum tomato, diced or
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 garlic cloves, smashed or 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Pam cooking spray or mazola cooking spray
- Use a Teflon coated 8” frying pan. Spray cooking spray in the pan and put on medium heat on stove.
- While pan heats up, cut up the raw bacon in ½” pieces and put it in the pan.
- Turn the bacon in the pan or stir until its crispy. Lower heat if the pans starts to smoke or it appears that the bacon is cooking too fast and burns. Do not drain fat.
- Add onions and fresh garlic and stir until they appear translucent (transparente). This should only take about 2-3 minutes. Do not let garlic burn it will taste AWFUL! If you use garlic powder add it together with the tomatoes.
- Add the tomatoes and stir altogether until all is heated.
- Add green beans from both cans with liquid from one can only. Stir altogether.
- When it starts to bubble or heat up, cover pan and turn heat to low to simmer for about 10 minutes.
Loved these green beans! The salty bacon with the garlic were terrific and I enjoyed the addition of the tomato (I used fresh and it was great!). Easy to make too - a great way to dress up plain old canned green beans!
Mmmm, made these last night, I used fresh beans so added a little vegetable stock to make up the liquid, also used olive oil rather than cooking spray. Lovely beans, full of flavour and colourful, well received by the family. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2008
We've been having our green beans this way for years. They are a staple in this house. Thanks for posting.
