Thanksgiving Green Beans

My sister made this for us.

¼ pound bacon (about 5 slices), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
Couple dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1 ½ pounds green beans, trimmed and rinsed
1/3 cup jarred roasted red peppers, coarsely chopped

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir the Worcestershire sauce, sugar, mustard and hot sauce into the bacon fat. Return the skillet to high heat, add the green beans and cook, tossing occasionally with tongs, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in the red peppers and half the bacon, tossing until warmed through, about 1 minute. Top with the remaining bacon (if you didn’t eat it all while cooking).

Serves 8, prep time 15 minutes, cook time 15 minutes
