Country-Style Green Beans Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Country-Style Green Beans which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) frozen "cut" green beans
  2. 3 slices bacon
  3. 4 ounces (115 g) sliced mushrooms
  4. tablespoon butter
  5. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice

Cooking Instructions

Put the beans in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover, and microwave on high for 7 minutes.

Cut the bacon into little pieces and put it in a large, heavy skillet?I use kitchen shears to snip t right into the pan?and start cooking it over mediumhigh heat.

When a little grease starts to cook out of the bacon, add the mushrooms and butter and cook it all together, stirring frequently, until the bacon is starting to get crispy and the mushrooms have softened and changed color.

Somewhere during this process, your microwave is going to go "ding!" When it does, go check the beans.

Chances are they'll still be underdone in the center, so stir them up and give them another 4 to 5 minutes.

When the beans are tender-crisp, pull them out of the microwave, drain them, and stir them into the bacon and mushrooms.

Stir in the lemon juice, let the whole thing cook together for just another minute or two to combine the flavors, and then serve.
