The holidays call for something out of the ordinary. Team SRF member Mandy Tanner developed a few recipes for savory sides to compliment our spectacular Gold Grade tenderloin roast, so you can have a celebration that is well rounded. This recipe combines our Kurobuta bacon with fresh green beans for a dish that goes well beyond the old green bean casserole.

Recipe notes: Plan on one bundle per person, and a few extras. It’s best to cover more of the green beans with the bacon in a single layer diagonally, as opposed to wrapping it only around the center. Doing so will ensure the green beans and mushrooms won’t burn, and the bacon can get crispy and cook through. Remove the skewers before placing on a serving platter.

*To blanch the green beans, place in boiling water for 60-90 seconds, then place in an ice bath to stop the cooking. The beans will turn a bright green color and this will help them in the cooking process to keep the ends from burning. Dry the green beans before assembling the bundles.
