Soy and Garlic Green Beans with Bacon and Caramelized Red Onions

Soy and Garlic Green Beans with Bacon and Caramelized Red Onions

by Pam on July 25, 2013

I found this recipe on Our Best Bites[1] that looked perfect to pair with the Hawaiian Chicken Thighs[2] and Garlic Rice[3] I was serving for dinner. These green beans took only minutes to make and tasted fantastic.  My kids gobbled up their portions and my husband and I each had seconds. Simple side dishes are the best! I will be making these green beans again and again.

Mix the soy sauce and the sugar together in a small bowl and stir well; set aside.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook both sides until crispy. Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel to drain. Crumble the bacon then set aside.

Remove all but 2 teaspoons of bacon grease from the skillet (or use the same amount of olive oil). Add the red onion and cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes.

While the onion is cooking, boil some water in a pot then place the green beans into the boiling water. Cook for one minute then drain.

After the onion has cooked for 3-4 minutes, add the garlic to the onion and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Add the cooked green beans to the onions and garlic then cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir the soy and sugar mixture really well then add that to the pan. Stir constantly for 1-2 minutes for the sauce to glaze the veggies; season with freshly cracked pepper to taste.  Add the bacon and mix until well combined. Pour into a serving dish and serve. Enjoy.
