You will need:
Green beans – fresh or frozen will work
Finely chop some onion. You will not need much. Set aside.
Take a few slices of bacon and cut into smaller pieces. Add to skillet (I like my iron skillet for this) and cook until fat begins to render. Add onion and cook for a few minutes. Add green beans and sauté until the beans have a nice char. Season with pepper. Serve.
