Skillet Green Beans and Mushroom

recipe from Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, root end cut off.

16oz portabella mushrooms, sliced

6 slices bacon. chopped into small pieces

1 small red onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

olive oil

salt & pepper


Place the chopped bacon in a large skillet with a lid. Cook until crispy. Remove from pan to a paper towel to drain. Take out all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease. Cook the onion in the bacon grease. You might have to add a little olive if they start to brown too fast. Cook the onion under just translucent. Add in the chopped garlic, the green beans and the sliced mushroom. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The liquid that the mushroom releases will help to steam the green beans in the pan. If you like soggy green beans (yuck) you can cook them a bit longer.
