  1. Set a Dutch oven over medium heat and add the olive oil . Once the oil is hot, add the bacon, stirring occasionally, and begin to sear until most of the fat has rendered and the bacon is well caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the string beans to the pan and toss well with the bacon and onions. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the chicken stock . As soon as the stock begins to boil, place the lid on the pan and cook the beans for about 6 minutes. Remove the lid, season the beans with the salt and pepper and toss well. Return the lid and cook the beans until tender, about 1 or 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving dish or small platter to serve.
