Simple Green Beans and Bacon Cooking Recipes

Green Beans and Bacon

In the old days, the bacon would be cooked with the beans for a long slow infusion of taste. Today, with changing tastes, the two are cooked separately, both remaining crisp; the flavors combine but are still individually distinct. I serve this simple cooking recipes with chicken or veal.

Makes 6 servings

  • 5 thick slices bacon

  • 1 small onions, very thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, topped, tailed, strung if necessary, and steamed until just tender

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

  1. In a medium-size skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on paper towels, leaving the fat in the skillet. Crumble the bacon and set aside.

  2. In the fat in the same skillet, cook the onion over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Drain, stir the sugar and vinegar into the hot skillet, cooking over medium heat just until dissolved. Add the beans and reserved bacon. Heat through, tossing to coat with the vinegar. Season well with salt, pepper, and thyme. Serve this simple green beans and bacon cooking recipes very hot.
