Serves 3-4 | Prep Time 30 min. | Cook Time 20 or until liq. absorbs


1 large can green beans (i like italian, but can use french, they absorb flavors more because they are thinner.
3 slices bacon (cooked, drained, and crumbled)
1/2 small onion (diced)
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar(or regular vinegar, you choice)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Put into skillet on stove and heat until is medium.

Add the bacon and cook until bacon is crisp, remove to paper towels to drain, keep fat in skillet. Crumble when cooled.

Add onions and saute until just lightly browned, watch closely will over cook.

Add green beans (undrained)

Add vinegar and cook on medium low until liquid is almost evaporated. (can hardly find any liquid) (careful not to burn)

Serve with bacon sprinkled over green beans.

I was raised on southern food, and this is one I love. My mom prepared this recipe as a side dish all the time. Its one of my favorite recipes.
