Sweet and Sour Green Beans

Yet another Everyday Food recipe. I was hoping to try this for thanksgiving but we went with a different veggie-friendly recipe instead, so I made this at home a week later. Not the healthiest way to get your veggies and sorta complicated for a random tuesday, but it was so good - try it for company sometime!

Serves 4
4 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 pound green beans, trimmed
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. With tongs, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate (reserve skillet with pan drippings).

Add onion to skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to brown,3 to 5 minutes. Add green beans and 1/4 cup water; cook, tossing occasionally, until beans are bright green and tender, about 10 minutes.
Crumble bacon into skillet; add vinegar and sugar. Cook until a syrupy sauce forms, 2 minutes, tossing to coat. Serve immediately.
