These Sauteed Green Beans are made with simple and fresh ingredients that are cheap to get. You can omit the bacon if you are trying to cut back on your food spending.
Add your bacon and shallots into a pan (a cast iron brings the best flavor). Brown until they're caramelized and translucent.
Add in your green beans, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Saute the green beans and enjoy! You can easily use fresh or frozen beans, whatever fits your budget.
