  • 1 pkg ButcherBox Bacon julienned

  • Add 3 quarts of cold water to a stock pot with 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Bring to a boil.
  • In a large mixing bowl set up an ice bath. Cold water and ice.
  • Drop half of the trimmed green beans into the boiling water. Remove green beans when they turn bright green. Approximately 2-3 minutes. Immediately, place green beans in ice bath to stop carryover cooking.
  • Let water come to a boil again before dropping remaining green beans and repeat process. Strain from ice bath and set aside.
  • Heat a large sauté pan on medium-low heat. Place half of julienned bacon in hot pan and sauté for 4 minutes.
  • Once fat has rendered out of the bacon and it starts to crisp add half of the green beans and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and platter.
  • Repeat process with second half of bacon and green beans.
    Chef tip: green beans can be steamed the day before and placed in a resealable container and stored in the refrigerator.
