Blistered Green Beans

Ingredients
1/3
cup apple cider vinegar
1/4
cup water
2
shallots, sliced
2
teaspoons sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons fine sea salt
1/4
pound bacon, chopped (about 4 slices)
2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2
pounds green beans, trimmed
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
4
cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2
cup fresh cilantro leaves
1
fresh jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced*

Directions

  1. For pickled shallots, in a small saucepan bring vinegar, water, shallots, sugar, and 1 teaspoon of the salt to simmering. Remove from heat and let stand until ready to use.
  2. In a very large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, until browned and crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain, leaving fat in skillet. Add oil to fat in skillet and increase heat to high. Add beans, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are blistered and crisp tender. Stir in garlic and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until garlic is browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer beans to a serving platter, then top with cilantro, jalapeno, bacon, and drained pickled shallots.

Wear gloves when handling hot peppers because volatile oils can burn skin and eyes. Wash immediately if hands touch seeds or membranes.
