Green Beans with Bacon & Mushrooms
Green beans and bacon are always a winning combination. Here, sautéed mushrooms add a little more heft to this easy side dish.
Test Kitchen Tip
Purchase firm, crisp, and evenly colored green beans. Snap one in half — it’s fresh if moisture forms at the break.
Blanch beans in a pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 4 minutes; drain.
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate and drain all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
Deglaze skillet with vinegar, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce vinegar until evaporated, then add reserved beans to skillet and toss to combine. Top beans with bacon and season with salt and pepper.
