Serves 4 to 5

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 pieces bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried chopped onion (may substitute with about 1/4 of a fresh onion, chopped)

Instructions

  1. First, chop your bacon into small pieces. Clean and trim the green beans. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add your cleaned beans, bacon pieces, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion.
  2. Cover the beans and continue to cook for about 10 minutes. Make sure you toss the mixture frequently. You want the green beans to stay crisp but also be cooked all the way through.
  3. After about 10 minutes, uncover and continue to cook until the mixture starts to caramelize. Remove from pan and serve.

Yes sure, just remember that 1 clove of garlic is equal to 1 teaspoon. Im sure the oyster sauce would give the beans a good flavor. I would add the sauce at the end. Heat the pan to a medium/high heat so the sauce sears when you add it.. It should start to carmelize quicly. then remove from the pan..
