Original recipe yields 5 servings

Directions

  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate; return the skillet with the reserved bacon grease to the stove.
  2. Cook the onion in the bacon drippings until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the green beans and red pepper flakes; cook another 2 minutes. Pour the boiling water into the skillet and cover the skillet immediately; steam for about 15 minutes, shaking the skillet occasionally to keep the beans from sticking to the bottom. Add the butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until the butter is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cooked bacon over the beans to serve.

Wow. These were really delicious and so easy to prepare. Next time I will probably omit the butter as it didn’t really add to the taste but it did add to the calories.

Note: The 2 slices of bacon is a typo, it was originally 2 ounces of slab bacon (although I have used sliced bacon with equally god results as well). Thanks for the reviews!

What a fabulous recipe!!! Made these several times and there were no left overs. On one occasion I omitted the bacon and they were just as delicious without it. A delicious recipe for green beans and an easy one to prepare. Will make these many more times in the future.
