Blistered Green Beans

Blistered Green Beans

Ingredients

cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
2 shallots, sliced
2 teaspoons sugar
teaspoons fine sea salt
¼ pound bacon, chopped (about 4 slices)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds green beans, trimmed
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced*

Directions

1. 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. 2. 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. From the Test Kitchen Note *Wear gloves when handling hot peppers because volatile oils can burn skin and eyes. Wash immediately if hands touch seeds or membranes.
