“This recipe comes from Hamburg, Germany where it's called 'Bohnen und Birnen mit Speck.' It's a delicious variation of a traditional dish.” - by MARILYN PERZIK
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until partially cooked but not brown, 5 to 6 minutes; drain on paper towels.
- Combine the drained bacon, green beans, and pears in a large saucepan; pour enough water over the mixture to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer until cooked and tender, about 30 minutes.
- Remove from the pan to a serving dish with a slotted spoon, draining excess water. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

"Very tasty! I acquired a bunch of free Bosc pears and had to figure out how to incorporate them into my dinner before they went bad. I cooked up some tofu to a bacon-like consistency and flavor and ..." See moreskipped boiling it with the green beans and pears. I'm sure it's even tastier as properly prepared."
