I am set in my way when in comes to green beans.
I don't want a goopy green bean casserole.
I don't want any kind of cheese or sauce on them.
I want good old fashioned slow cooked green beans, just like my Nan made.
If they're just out of the garden, even better.
After trying this recipe, I may have to add one addition.
Bambi Liller submitted this recipe to the cookbook and let me just say - Bazinga!
I'm kinda loving it.
Here's what you'll need:
4 strips bacon
2 large onions
3 pounds fresh green beans
3 Tbsp. vinegar
4 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
In a heavy skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Remove and drain, reserving 2 Tbsp. of drippings. In drippings, cook onions over low heat until brown, about 15 minutes. Cook beans 8-10 minutes until tender and crisp. Drain. Stir vinegar and brown sugar into onions. Add beans. Cook for 1 minute. Add crumbled bacon. Salt & pepper to taste.
Really, what's not to love about beans, onions and bacon. I used beans I had canned from last year's garden and only one onion, chopped. I was just a little too tired to go out to the cellar for the second onion. It was still delish.
Sorry, we ate it before I remembered a picture.
Thanks Bambi for the great recipe.
