This recipe for Pressure Cooker Green beans with Bacon is one of those non-recipe recipes. What I mean by that is that it’s something I made when I just really don’t have the energy, either physically or mentally, to make something elaborate.
Given that it’s quick, nutritious, tasty and low-carb, plus something I can either eat as a side dish or as my main meal, I find myself making it quite often.
The reason I call this a no-recipe recipe is that I basically throw things in a pot and hope for the best. I have other recipes like this such as my sausage and kale recipe, or my quick 10-minute lunch with cabbage.
