Speckbohnen (German Green Beans)
- 6 oz green beans
- ½ tbsp butter
- ¼ onion
- 3/3 oz speck or bacon or prosciutto
- Cook the green beans as you would normally – I’d suggest either steam them for a few minutes, boil or cook in the microwave with a little water. Whichever way, it will only take a couple minutes and you want them tender but only just so they don’t become mushy and keep their nice green color. Drain and set aside.
- While the beans are cooking, melt the butter in a small-medium skillet. Finely dice the onion and add it to the pan. Cook for a minute while you finely slice and dice the speck or bacon. Add the speck/bacon to the pan and cook for a couple minutes until it is starting to crisp. Add the cooked beans, cook a minute, stirring regularly, then serve.
