How to Make It
Cook bacon in a large frying pan. When cooked, remove bacon and let drain. Once cool to the touch, crumble.
Prepare chard: Remove colorful rib from chard leaves and set aside. Chiffonade or roughly tear leaves. Slice rib into small pieces.
Trim ends off of green beans.
Mince all the garlic.
Reheat pan with bacon fat in it over medium heat. Toss in green beans and chard stem, followed by ⅔ of the garlic. Sautee together.
When green beans are starting to soften, but still look bright green and have a bit of crunch, after about 10 minutes, add the rest of the garlic and the butter. Stir to coat.
After about 2 minutes, add in chard leaves. Stir till leaves have mostly wilted.
Take off heat and serve.
