"A nice little touch to plain ole' green beans!!! This really goes by your own taste buds, so if you want it extra 'snappy' add more vinegar!"

distilled white vinegar
1 (15 ounce) can
cut green beans, drained
I could eat this all day, but definitely use fresh, steamed green beans and red wine vinegar.
I was not too smitten with this. My husband actually disliked it because of the onion (even though I only used half). I cooked the bacon in the microwave, like one of the reviews suggested, but I think now that that was a mistake and the dish needs the flavor from the bacon grease. I also used red wine vinegar and I added some minced garlic as suggested, and I think that is definitely the way to go.
My husband really liked these, but I made them into a "cold" dish. I used fresh green beans, "garlic red wine vinegar" and also added minced garlic. I also used already cooked bacon to eliminate some fat and then steamed everything together in my microwave, let it cool & served. Nice easy side, thanks Casey.
I did this receipe for Thanksgiving Dinner as I was asked to bring a "green" veggie..I did use Frozen Green beans, and micowaved them w/ the bacon onion/vinegar it was quick/easy and Delicious!!
Overall the taste on this recipe was great. I made one change and would recommend making one other. Instead of canned beans I used raw fresh beans out of the garden. Very good and crispy. I would recommend not to saute the onions in bacon grease. My husband of course, being a man, loved it, but I thought it was just a bit too heavy and greasy. I'll definately make it again though, minus the bacon grease!!
Tasty & healthy- if you make it my way! Saute' onions in a little olive oil. ( I only used half the amount.) Add vinegar, then green beans. Next add 6 T. bacon bits. Heat through- not greasy at all this way. It's tart with the vinegar- we liked it!
I made mine with fresh green beans, red wine vinegar, bacon with just a little grease (just enough to barely cover the bottom of the skillet), onion and fresh minced garlic. I needed to add a little water about half way thru to finish cooking the beans, but OH BABY was it good when it was done! I only gave it 4 stars because it was amazing with changes... as written, it's 4 stars, how I made it it's 5 stars!
The best green bean recipe ever! I use Louis Rich Turkey Bacon cooked in the microwave and saute my onions in olive oil to cut down on the fat content. Even my 1 year old granddaughter loves them!
