Quick cooking, savory, and hearty bacon green beans are great for complementing any dish. They are awesome for potlucks, and one of the most frequently requested dish at our family get togethers. 

Ingredients

  • 5 slices uncured bacon, sliced into bite-sized pieces*

  • 6-8 cups fresh or frozen green beans, cut in half (optional)

  • 1 cup onion, diced*

  • 1/2-1 cup chicken broth

  • Vegan butter (to taste, add after cooking)*

  • Spices
  • 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt + more to taste

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper + more to taste

Directions

  • Prepare ingredients: cut up bacon, dice onions, break/cut green beans in half.
  • Turn Instant Pot to Sauté.
  • Once hot, add bacon to Instant Pot and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add onions (if using) to Instant Pot and sauté with bacon until onions are soft, be careful not to let the bacon and onions burn.
  • Add green beans, broth, salt, and pepper to Instant Pot and stir. 
  • Lock the lid in place taking care that the steam release valve is set to “sealed” and not “venting”.
  • Set to “Chili/Beans” setting and set to 4 minutes.
  • Once finished, immediately release all pressure, by turning to vent handle/spout to “venting” and unlock lid.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper, and vegan butter to taste.
  • Let cool and serve warm. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.

Notes

  • *Bacon: Check to make sure that your bacon is gluten-free, nitrate-free, and uncured. Bonus points for organic and fed a grain/soy free diet, if you can!
  • *Onion: Just use what’s on hand. You can sub 1 tsp onion powder if you desire, but it’s not necessary. Try it with and without the onion and do what’s easier for you. If onions give you indigestion, just omit completely. I leave it out so our dog can eat what falls on the floor…
  • *Vegan Butter: We love Miyoko’s vegan butter. It’s free of canola oil and soy, and it tastes great. Of course if you can tolerate it and don’t mind how dairy cows are raise, you can sub out with grass-fed butter.
