Bacon-Braised Green Beans

Bacon-Braised Green Beans

Qty: 8 Servings


The ideal braised green bean should be tender and moist, but still retain a hint of crunch in its walls. It should be cooked in a flavorful liquid so that it has a chance to pick up those flavors that really enhance it. The Bacon-Braised Green Beans side dish by Serious Eats has exactly all of these things. Rather than succumbing to the same ol, al dente style that we’re all so used to, try adding a bit of crunch and savory flavor to this classic holiday dish. Juicy, aromatic bacon, crunchy onion, spicy garlic, and a kick of red chili flakes coat the earthy green beans and give you a powerful punch of flavor that you crave from a side dish.
