Green beans are lifted out of the doldrums with bacon and sweet-and-sour sauce in this terrific vegetable side dish.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon oil
1
medium onion, sliced (3/4 cup)
4
cups frozen cut green beans
2
tablespoons water
1/2
cup purchased sweet-and-sour sauce
2
tablespoons cider vinegar
1
can (15.5 oz) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
6
slices precooked bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in wok or 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is tender and lightly browned.
  • 2 Add frozen green beans; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add water; cover and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, in 1-cup glass measuring cup, mix sweet-and-sour sauce and vinegar.
  • 3 Add sauce mixture, great northern beans and bacon to wok; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Tips  

If you really enjoy the flavor of bacon, you can fry the bacon instead of using precooked and substitute 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings for the oil. Other canned beans can be used if you don’t have great northern beans. Pinto, navy or light red kidney beans are all good options.

Next time you fry bacon, plan on making more than you need. Freeze the extra in a resealable freezer plastic bag for a quick addition to future meals.
