Ingredients
  • 1 pound fresh green beans - trimmed
  • 4 tablespoons bacon fat (left over from cooking bacon)
  • 8 ounces bacon - cooked and crumbled
  • 6 shallots - peeled and thinly sliced
Directions
  • Cook bacon (in cast iron if you have it). Remove and crumble the bacon, making sure to save the rendered fat in the pan.
  • Steam the green beans until their color becomes vibrantly green and tender without becoming too soft - about six to nine minutes.
  • In the pan the bacon was cooked in, heat remaining bacon fat on medium until melted and sizzling.
  • Place thinly sliced shallots into the hot bacon fat, and cook until well-caramelized with a smoky fragrance - about five to seven minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Add steamed green beans to the hot fat and cook for a minute or two until the beans are heated through and well-coated. Take out of the pan, and serve in a nice dish.
  • Sprinkle bacon and caramelized shallots over the green beans. Enjoy!
