Fresh Beans with Lardons

  • Rating:


1/4 cup lardons/bacon, diced
3 shallots, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 large tomato, chopped
2-3 fresh bay leaves or 1 dried bay leaf
2 cups chicken broth
2-3 cups shelled fresh beans


Brown the lardons in a medium sized sauce pan.  Add the shallots, garlic and butter, continuing to saute until the shallots are soft.  Add the tomato, bay leaves, chicken broth and shelled beans, bring to a boil, then simmer for 40-50 minutes until the beans are creamy inside but still firm on the outside.
