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.
