  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook until browned, but not yet crispy. Push bacon to the sides of the skillet and add the onions and garlic to the bacon grease. Cook and stir until onions are barely translucent. Stir in the green beans, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour in the water, and mix in the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Simmer over low heat uncovered until water has evaporated and green beans are tender, about 1 hour.

The worcestershire sauce is really good... but I like to subtitute marsala wine for the worcestershire sauce and make everythign else the same way, and adding some sliced mushrooms.

Have made this dish twice already. Did not change a thing. Have used both canned and frozen green beans, and it was good both ways. Even the picker eaters in my family love this recipe. Will...

I had high hopes for this recipe, but I was very disappointed. The tastes just did not seem to mix as well as they could have.

This was a really good change from your average green bean dishes. The first time I made it using the brown sugar and it was perfect. Then I realized that by omitting the sugar and cutting down ...
