Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slice on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool and crumble bacon. Reserve 1 teaspoon of bacon drippings.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans, recover, and steam until just tender, 3 minutes.

  • Whisk together olive oil, Dijon-style mustard, vinegar, bacon drippings, and shallot in a bowl. Toss hot, steamed green beans in a bowl with the dressing and crumbled bacon, and serve.

Cook's Note

To make the dressing in a blender, place the olive oil, Dijon-style mustard, vinegar, bacon drippings, and shallot into blender, cover, and puree until smooth.

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit with all 16 people. Funny since the green veggie is usually overlooked on Thanksgiving!I made it in advance re-heated and tossed w/ dressing & bacon crumbles right before serving. I added a few more pieces of bacon to crumble on top. I'm sure I'll be making it again. Thanks! Read More

The idea of raw shallots didn't appeal to me so I sauteed them briefly in the bacon fat. Aside from that I prepared these as the recipe directed with its interesting and different ingredients. Unfortunately neither hubs nor I cared for the tang of the vinegar and would have much preferred this without. Read More

Definitely has possibilities but was bitter - too much of a tang with the vinegar. I added a touch of sugar. Read More

Simply DELICIOUS! I doubled the bacon since we love bacon. Did not have shallots on hand so I minced some onion and garlic and I cooked them in the bacon fat before adding them to the dressing.I would could back a bit on the mustard next time but that is only my preference. Thanks submitter. Read More

We are not fans of raw onions but I thought the shallots would be ok. It was still a little too much "onion" tasting for us - it overpowered the asparagus. I'd rather just have plain steamed asparagus. Read More

We loved the tangy sauce with these green beans. I will definitely make this again. I may even make the sauce as a marinade for chicken! Read More
