Serves: 8 

  • 900g fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 225g smoked streaky bacon, cut into 1.25cm pieces

  1. Make an ice bath by filling a large pot with ice and water; set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook the green beans in the boiling water until slightly tender yet crisp, about 3 minutes; drain. Immediately plunge the green beans into the ice bath to stop them from cooking further. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cook the bacon in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the onions to the bacon and continue cooking until the onions begin to caramelise and turn golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the green beans, red wine vinegar and sugar; cook and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.
