|Bacon and Onion Green Beans|
4.5 net carbs per serving
3 slices of bacon
1/2 onion, diced (sometimes I do long slices instead)
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce (optional)
1/2 pound green beans (frozen or fresh, any cut. NOT CANNED)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut bacon into small pieces. I like to use kitchen scissors and cut all 3 slices at once. Chop onion. Cook bacon and onion together in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. While the bacon and onion is cooking, we will do a bit of a cheater method to start the green beans going. If using fresh, wash first. Put green beans (fresh or frozen) in a microwave safe bowl with about a TBSP of water. Microwave for about 3-4 minutes to defrost/start the cooking process. Once bacon looks close to done, add the green beans, worcestershire, salt and pepper to the skillet. Stir occasionally. If your green beans look like they are drying up a bit before they have softened, add a TBSP of water or beef broth at a time to keep moist until the green beans are soft. That's it!
