Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 skipped boiling it with the green beans and pears. I'm sure it's even tastier as properly prepared.

What a delightful dish. It was the hit of my Sunday night dinner. There is not a single thing I would change.
