green bean superb: a favorite

I could have titled this one How to Make Fresh Green Vegetables Fattening :)

You will need:
1 lb of fresh green beans
1 T minced shallot (optional)
2 slices bacon (not optional)
1 t apple cider vinegar (white vinegar works too)

Saute bacon, adding shallots the last minute or so. Remove bacon from pan, reserving grease and shallots. Saute green beans in bacon/shallot grease for about 4 minutes. Mix in cider vinegar. Crumble bacon and toss with green beans. Serve immediately.


  1. green beans and bacon; yum! I need to keep a note of this.

  2. I sometimes fix green beans like that and they are wonderful. My mother put bacon in the beans and then boiled them to mushy. Yuck! I never knew how tasty green beans were until I left home.

  3. umm...YUM! I will be making this very shortly. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Crunchy, fresh, and bright, not MUSH like so many make them.

    Good recipe and have a great day,


  5. Oh this is the recipe I've been looking for!! Love these, but never knew exactly how to replicate. Thanks for sharing!!
