In a large skillet cook bacon, uncovered, over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until just crisp, turning occasionally. Remove bacon, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet; drain bacon on paper towels.
Add green beans, carrots, margarine or butter, and garlic to reserved drippings in skillet. Stir-fry over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Crumble bacon. Stir pepper into vegetable mixture. Remove from heat. Transfer to a serving bowl. Top with crumbled bacon. Makes 12 servings.
