Brown Sugar Bacon Green Beans
  • 1 lb green beans trimmed
  • 6 pieces bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar or sucanat
  • Sea salt and Black Pepper
  1. Place the green beans in a pot and fill with about 1 inch of water. Bring water to a boil and then place the lid on the pot. Steam the beans over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-8 minutes.
  2. While beans are cooking, in a large skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until done (but not quite crisp).
  3. Drain off grease and add butter and brown sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until the brown sugar has dissolved.
  4. Drain the water from the beans, season with salt and pepper, and stir in the sugar and bacon mixture. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

If the brown sugar mixture starts to go hard, you can quickly reheat it before pouring it over your beans.
