This is my favourite way to cook green beans during special occasion . Because it has a really yummy flavor , i would love to make this more than just for special occasion !! They’re super easy , the key is to blanch your green beans and not to overcook it , or it will lose it’s crunchiness and all the good stuff in it . Then caranelized the onion slowly , and don’t forget to add the bacon .. for the extra flavor .
1 lb of green beans , ends removed , washed and drained
Bring water to boil , then blanch the green beans for 5-6 minutes , remove and rinsed with cold water to stop the cooking process
1 red bell pepper , cut in strips
1 onion , sliced thin
