Directions

  1. Place the chopped bacon in a large saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the bacon and set aside. Drain the grease from the pan.
  2. Stir the vinegar, white sugar, and brown sugar into the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Drain 2 cans of green beans and add them to the vinegar mixture. Pour 2 undrained cans of beans into the mixture, and stir the bacon back into the beans. Stir lightly to combine. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the sauce is thickened and the flavors have blended, about 20 minutes.

My husband loved these! I was worried because he likes the way I usually cook green beans and thought he might stick his nose up at the change. Instead, he said they were the BEST green beans I had ever made. Plus, I like them a lot better like this too. Very good, very easy to follow and with ingredients you probably already have on hand. Great recipe. I used ham instead of bacon because it's what I had on hand. Can't wait to try it with bacon. Thanks!

I made this recipe for Fathers Day, it was such a hit. Everyone stated it isnt your boring grenbeans. Amazing enough you can taste the BBQ flavor. The best thing is my 92 year old grandmother LOVED them and it is hard to beat all of her recipes.

I think this is a really good start to adding something different to green beans. I give it a 3 because the general consensus was that the bacon was yummy but the sauce was too sweet... and I had added less sugar than what was called for. Next time I will add more vinegar, even less sugar, and maybe some soy sauce based on another review I saw. I also had a hard time getting the sauce to thicken so had to add some cornstarch... next time I will drain three of the cans.
