GREEN BEANS with Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar
1 pound fresh Green beans
3 slices bacon
1 Tablespoon Balsamic vinegar …
Salt and pepper
All measurement are approximate. I don’t measure when doing this recipe.
Cook 3 slices of bacon in large skillet until brown but not hard and crispy. Remove bacon and chop. Meanwhile, cook or steam green beans to al dente and drain.
Place hot beans in the skillet with bacon grease, add a little salt and pepper, sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, tasting once or twice. Stir until coated and beans are picking up brown bits from bottom of pan. Add back the bacon pieces.
What you want is to just barely taste the balsamic vinegar, more so that it brings out the flavor of the beans and doesn’t dominate the dish. Serve warm or at room temperature.
