- 2 pounds green beans
- 3 pieces uncooked bacon
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
Cut the ends off the green beans and rinse throughly. In a large pot, combine the green beans, bacon, salt and onions. Fill with water until covered, about 4 cups. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. When done, remove 3/4 of the liquid in the pan, and discard. Add the butter to the beans and stir until melted and combined throughly. Serve.
