Cook your slices of bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. You can either cook these in whole pieces or cut them into small pieces.
Remove the crispy bacon and set them aside on paper towels to soak up the excess fat. In the same pan, sauté the onion and mined garlic in the bacon fat.
Once the garlic and onions are fragrant, add the green beans to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then, add enough water to just cover the entire bottom of the pan. For our 9” cast iron, this required ⅓ of a cup of water, but the amount will depend on your pan size. Cover the pan and let it cook for 15 minutes.
Once the green beans are softened, shift them to one side of the pan and add the honey and soy sauce to the open place in the pan. Mix the honey and soy sauce together with a whisk or fork. Then, toss the green beans in this savory sauce. Let the sauce come to a light boil and cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly.
Dice the bacon into small bits, if cooked whole. Add the bacon pieces to the green beans and remove the pan from heat. Mix it all together and enjoy!
