Ingredients:

  • 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet or frying pan, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside, leaving the bacon drippings in the pan.
  2. Add the diced onion to the bacon drippings in the pan and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the trimmed green beans to the pan along with the chicken broth and water. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes, if using. Stir to combine.
  4. Bring the liquid to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and cook the green beans for about 15-20 minutes, or until tender but still crisp, stirring occasionally.
  5. Once the green beans are cooked to your desired tenderness, remove the lid from the pan and stir in the cooked bacon pieces and butter. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  6. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve the Texas Roadhouse Copycat Green Beans hot, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.
