BLISTERED GREEN BEANS

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

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.
