How to make it

  • Render bacon in large skillet over low heat until almost stiff. Remove bacon to paper towels to adsorb excess grease.
  • Decant to reserve bacon grease and wipe skillet clean.
  • Return skillet and 1T bacon grease to a medium heat. Reserve remainder of bacon grease for another use.
  • Add onion and saute till translucent and just starting to turn light golden brown.
  • Saute garlic in skillet for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Slice/crumble bacon and return to skillet.
  • Add green beans, snapping in half the longer ones, stir to thoroughly coat beans.
  • Add 1/2c white wine and saute until liquid is adsorbed.
  • Add 1c bouillon and saute until liquid is adsorbed.
  • Again add 1c bouillon and saute until liquid is adsorbed.
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add 1/2c white wine and saute until liquid is adsorbed.
  • I prefer a white zinfandel from Turning Leaf for its fruity flavor.

    Thanks for the compliment, I think. Will have to get the dictionairy out to define that flinders word.:)

    I developed this recipe for another cooking contest that had a list of foodstuff spec'ed out that must be used. It takes a while to cook up but has nice flavor.
