About this recipe: A wonderful German-inspired bacon dish. Par-cooked bacon is simmered with green beans and pears. It's the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Serve with potatoes.


Serves: 4 

  • 225g thick sliced streaky bacon, cut into 2.5cm pieces
  • 450g fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 3.75cm pieces
  • 3 pears, cored and cut into quarters
  • 1 litre water
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until partially cooked but not brown, 5 to 6 minutes; drain on kitchen towels.
  2. Combine the drained bacon, green beans and pears in a large saucepan; pour enough water over the mixture to cover. Bring to the boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer until cooked and tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the pan to a serving dish with a slotted spoon, draining excess water. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
