The spring weather cannot arrive here soon enough. I am so over the wind, snow, and frigid temperatures we have been getting slammed with as of lately. I cannot wait to plant my garden and reap the benefits of what Jared and I sow. One of our favorite vegetables to grow are green beans because we love to saute them!
I love the way fresh green beans smell, and that snap they have is something I cannot wait for!
One of my favorite ways to enjoy green beans are sauteed. That is why I wanted to share this yummy Garlic Bacon Sauteed Green Beans Made With Lard recipe. It is a perfect spring, summer, or winter side dish but tastes even better of course with fresh green beans (not canned).
When I have made these Garlic Bacon Sauteed Green Beans in the past I use to use butter. We all know butter can make things taste amazing, but it actually not the best fat to cook with. On my quest for healthier fats to use in my baking and sauteing lard often came up. I have never actually cooked with lard, but was open to trying it out.
I was introduced to Armour Premium All-Natural Lard which makes the perfect substitute for cooking and baking. It has no trans fat and contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and lowers LDL cholesterol.
Reasons why to make the switch to Armour Premium All-Natural Lard:
- Lard has less saturated fat than butter and no trans fat like shortening.
- Lard does not smoke at high temperatures which is great for frying and roasting.
Green beans are great sauteed alone, but when you add in bacon, things get kicked up a notch!
Bacon paired with garlic and green beans makes magical things happen!
