Directions
  1. Bring a large pot of water with ½ teaspoon salt to a boil; add green beans (water should just cover the beans). Cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes, drain the beans and set aside.
  2. Heat the butter or ghee in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic and cook, constantly stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in the chopped bacon and green beans. Sauté, while gently tossing, over medium heat for about 1 minute to combine all ingredients. Season with salt to taste and garnish with red pepper flakes.
  5. Remove from heat and serve.
