French Beans with Bacon and Fried Onion

I preferred crispy and green french beans but hubby likes overcooked and well done french beans if he have to take this vegetables.I guess American preferred well done french beans rather than green,crispy and crunchy one,right? Well,I cooked this french beans with bacon and onion for our Thanksgiving dinner. I guess some people called string bean if the bean is slightly longer and thicker.I bought a packed of frozen green beans from Trader Joe's,it's written as French Beans coz it's imported from French. The different it's this French beans has a thinner and slim body than the regular string beans in market.If you like well done green beans or french bean or string beans this caramelized dish is suitable for your family dinner.







Ingredients:
2 lbs French Beans,or Green Beans or String Beans,washed and cleaned( I used frozen French Beans which is all cleaned,just thawed at room temperature)
4 cloves garlic,peeled and sliced
2 large onion,peeled and sliced + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp ground black pepper
5-6 strip fried bacon,chopped
5-6 tbsp oil to fry onion
Method:

1:Heat deep skillet with oil at medium heat,when it's hot enough add in onion coated with flour,fried until crisp and lightly brown.Then dish out and set aside.
2:Use the same skillet ,add in some bacon grease and garlic,fry until lightly brown or fragrant.Add in french beans and chicken broth .Sauteed ingredients until cooked and soft,about 15 minutes or longer.
3:Add fried onion into french beans ,cook for another 10 minutes.Check the taste before dish out and sprinkle cooked bacon on the top.
4:Serve warm as side dish.

Not sure if this is a deja vu ... I think I had this before in the U.S. But, it does sound like a fusion dish for a Chinese like me LOL! ... It's like our French beans & ground pork stir-fry, eh?
