Sauteed Green Bean Recipe


Sauteed Green Bean with Bacon

I was with my family at Outer Banks vacation 2 weeks ago. The vacation is AWESOME!! being with my family, make things together and hang out on the beach is priceless. We had so much fun..:)
One thing we do as family was to have dinner together every night. The idea is, one family member choose to cooked for everybody on certain day, then other family member do the cooking the next day and so on and so fort.. until everybody got their turn. I got too excited that  I want to cooked first, hahah:)
I made some Rice, Beef Caldereta minus peas, and Sauteed Green Bean, and chocolate peanut butter brownies for dessert. The food are good and more fun especially when it shared with family. My mother in-law brought some wine and yeah... it was delicious!!. I love how the green beans add some special taste to the whole meal. I'm a big green bean fan and so my family. So, here I am, more excited to share this recipe here on my blog. C'mon let's hang out in my kitchen and start cooking..:)
Below is the recipe and hopefully you would love to try for your next family gathering. Enjoy cooking..:)

Blanching is a cooking process wherein the food substance, usually a vegetable or fruit, is plunged into boiling water, removed after a brief, timed interval, and finally plunged into iced water or placed under cold running water (shocked) to halt the cooking process.( source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blanching_%28cooking%29)

Ingredients:
1 lbs. Green Beans- (Trim both end)
3 pieces bacon- slice into small pieces
1 small onion- thinly slice
Salt and Pepper - to taste


1.)   In large pan, bring water to boil, add the green beans. Let it boil for 5 minutes or until half way cooked and crisp in texture.
2.) Placed the green beans into ice water to stop the cooking process and to retain the color and texture.
3.) Meanwhile, In large pan, cooked the bacon until golden brown and crisp, add the onion and sauteed for couple minutes.
4.) Drain the water from the green beans. Then, add the green beans into the pan and sauteed for 4-5 minutes until everything cooked but still have that texture from the beans.
5.)  Salt and Pepper if needed. Share and Enjoy!

Note:
- Taste according to your preference
- Bacon is optional
- blanching method is important to obtained great texture of the green beans.

  4. I didn't knew about the ice thing. Hmmm... that's why some steamed vegetables served in the restaurants are still green and looking fresh.

    2. I would try this with bacon lol. I used to love those asparagus with bacon wrapped around them at teriyaki boy. so love them (I wonder if the wrapped bacon negates the healthy beans :) )
