Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

8 slices bacon
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen French-style green beans
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts


Fry bacon in a large skillet. Remove from skillet and set aside. Use bacon drippings to saute onion and ginger. Saute about 2 minutes and add salt. Saute 1 minute longer. Add soy sauce and water; bring to a boil. Add green beans and cover.

While steaming the beans, reduce the heat to simmer and cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook 5 more minutes. Stir in water chestnuts and crumbled bacon.

I made these green beans for dinner tonight and everybody just loved them! Instead of using regular bacon, I used turkey bacon and made the recipe as posted. My daughter said to me next time "please double the recipe"! Thanks for posting!
