Dijon Mustard Green Beans with Bacon and Carmelized Onions
Ah, new condiments can be the mother of invention. Such is the case for us recently with Trader Joe's Garlic Mustard Aioli. It's essentially a dijon that's not as strong and much more lemony.
From this new jar of greatness has sprung a favorite new way to cook green beans - smothering them in bacon, carmelized onions, and a buttery wine mustard sauce. This is really flavorful, super easy with ingredients on hand, gluten-free, and low carb. You're in, right?
- 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
- 6 strips of bacon, mostly cooked
- 1 whole onion, sliced into small chunks
- 1 tbsp TJ's Garlic Mustard Aioli OR 1/2 tbsp dijon + 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard + 1 clove garlic
- 1 tbsp of white wine
- 1 tbsp of butter, melted
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- dash of salt and pepper
- Lemon slice
- Boil your green beans for about 5-6 minutes on high. Remove from heat and douse with cold water.
- Throw your onion in a skillet with the olive oil. Cook on low for about 10-15 minutes until onions start to carmelize.
- Toss in your mostly cooked bacon at this point and continue to cook on low.
- In a ramekin, combine the salt, pepper, butter, wine, and mustard aioli mixture.
- Add the green beans to your skillet and coat with the mixture and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Spritz fresh lemon or lemon juice over the beans.
- Serve with your favorite protein with green beans. We did a sirloin from TJ's - om nitty nom nom for sure.
