Green beans are ready to be picked out in the garden. This is already the 2nd time they have been picked..What I love about making this is that you can make a large pot or small and do not have to adjust the time..I usually cook these in a pot on the stove for a few hours but the Electric pressure cooker cuts the time down so much that it is faster to cook these than to pick and snap them.
Temperature outside, this summer is reaching 100 degrees, so this is a great option to not heat up the kitchen to much.

How to Make Green beans and bacon in the pressure cooker

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash, clean, snap green beans.
    Add green beans to your pot that comes with your electric pressure cooker and add enough water to just cover your green beans. I have made a full pot and half the pot and it takes the same amount of time.
  2. Shut lid and set timer for 5 minutes.
    Meanwhile, chopped bacon and brown in a small frypan.
  3. Brown bacon till crispy and set aside until the 5 min are up on the green beans.
  4. Release pressure and add all the bacon, grease too and the sugar.
    Stir and close lid and set timer for another 5 min.
  5. Let beans set in pressure cooker until dinner (keep warm setting) and salt and pepper to taste before you serve them..
