Refreshing and so good!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yield: Serves 4
1 lb fresh green beans, ends snipped
4 slices thick cut bacon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in 1/2 (can add more if you would like)
Fresh black pepper
In a medium sauce pan, fill with water and bring to a boil. Blanch the green beans for roughly 5 minutes.
In the meantime, in a large skillet, cook the 4 strips of thick cut bacon. Once crispy, pull them out of the pan on to a cutting board lined with a piece of paper towel. Chop up the bacon into small pieces. Leave the bacon fat in the pan! It is free flavor!
Once green beans are blanched, with a slotted spoon or tongs, remove from water and put directly into skillet with bacon fat. On medium heat toss the green beans. Add the minced garlic, chopped bacon and a little fresh pepper. Cook for roughly 3-4 more minutes, tossing a few more times. Add the halved cherry tomatoes during the last 2-3 minutes and toss. Just to warm them through.
