 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb. thin green beans, trimmed
  • 3 strips bacon
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 12 oz. mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp parsley, minced
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh sage
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and immediately transfer the beans to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.

Drain the beans again and set aside.

Place the strips of bacon in a large skillet set over medium heat. Cook until the bacon is crisp. Transfer to a paper towel, then crumble the bacon and set aside.

Discard all but 1 teaspoon of the bacon fat. Add the olive oil to the bacon fat in the skillet, and turn to medium-high heat. Add the shallots and mushrooms, and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the green beans and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the parsley, thyme, sage, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook for an additional minute, then add the bacon.

Serve hot or at room temperature.
