4 cups green beans 1/2 c turkey bacon, chopped 1 small onion, minced 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 2 teaspoons sugar
Cook green beans in 1-inch simmering water, covered, for 6 minutes. Drain and set aside. Return skillet to stove and set burnier to medium high. Add bacon and brown. When fat begins to render, add chopped onions to the pan and cook until tender with the bacon. Add cooked green beans and turn to coat in bacon drippings and onions. When the beans are hot, bacon crisp at edges, and onions translucent, add vinegar to the pan and season beans with sugar. Allow the vinegar to evaporate and the sugar to combine with pan drippings, 1-2 minutes, then serve.
Awesome recipe. I change mine up a bit. I use maple-flavored bacon and add 1/2 tsp minced garlic. I also eliminate the sugar and vinegar. My husband is from the midwest and believes the term "bean" only refers to green beans :). He loves this recipe and so we use it often.
