Bacon and Onion Green Beans

Bacon and Onion Green Beans
You see that photo up there?  See that lovely bacon grease covered green beans with caramelized onions?  Yup, that is not only Low Carb/Atkins friendly but it is INDUCTION friendly?  Can't beat a diet/lifestyle like that!!  We have this side dish at least once a week because it is easy to make and yummy! (yummy is an official recipe blog term, no?)  All I can say about this one is to try it, try it at least once.  I promise you will be hooked.  Even before I was low-carb-afied I made this regularly, even for company.  It's that good!  Just make it dammit! *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

4 servings
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!

  5. Love this soup. I use half the flour and it turned out perfectly for our preference. Thanks for the recipe. Everyone at my party loved it and ive made it twice since then. Frozen chicken is perfect for this recipe at four hours on high. Access the Dark Web Deep Web stories Deep Web Reddit Links Deep Web Browsers
