Ingredients
  1. 6 strips bacon
  2. 16 oz. green beans, trimmed and rinsed (I prefer Hericots Verts)
  3. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  4. salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add bacon pieces and fry until cooked through and slightly crisp.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high.
  4. Add the green beans into the skillet with the bacon and bacon fat. Saute for about 5-7 minutes, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper, until the green beans are slightly tender (but not soggy).
  5. Pour in the balsamic vinegar and saute for 2 minutes more, so that the balsamic reduces and coats the green beans.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
