Pepper Bacon Green Beans

Candy-like, green beans.



  1. In a hot skillet, add the chopped pepper bacon.
  2. Stir frequently, until nearly done / crisp, about 2 minutes prior to being done. Drain most of the grease off.
  3. Add the chopped red onion. Stir frequently until onions are turning clear.
  4. Then add the chopped green beans, stir in well and cover for about a minute or two, stir again, and repeat until they are "aldente" or bright green and still a bit of crunch left in them.
  5. Plate them up for a nice, tasty lunch, a great side or even for dinner!

I wish there was a measurement for a serving. I will use food composition database by the USDA.

You can also do this same recipe with french style green beans. I also like to add a little Worcestershire sauce and the garlic to mine.

Tasty and simple!! I introduced this recipe to my mother, who made it for company. They all loved it! I also have made it with asparagus instead of green beans. Yum!! Thanks for the recipe.

Had to use canned beans which made it a bit salty, therefore I just put a dosh of pepper to even it out. TOTALLY YUM!

This is a great way to make green beans full of flavor. I have been making them this way forever. I also add a little garlic and some cider vinegar. YUMMO!
