This turned out to be a wonderful side dish. I picked up some fresh green beans at the store and thought they would taste really good cooked with pancetta and a little shallot. The green beans were perfectly cooked yet still crisp and the pancetta was a bit salty. My son ate two servings of these beauties – can’t beat that. Simple ingredients, easy to make and so delicious.
- 1 large handful of green beans, ends trimmed and cleaned
- 1 small shallot, sliced thinly
- 2 tbsp pancetta, diced finely
- Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot add pancetta and shallots and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the green beans. Cover with a lid and sauté and steam for 2-3 minutes or until the green beans are crisp but cooked. Serve and enjoy.
