A jazzed up version of a classic veggie side dish. Tastes like summertime. Tastes great alongside meat right off the grill.

string beans, any variety
salt, to taste
Heat large skillet on medium high or high, depending on your cooktop. Add bacon grease and string beans. Stir to coat all beans in bacon grease.
Every minute or so, stir the beans in the pan. Allow beans to sit in one spot long enough to get some blistered and blackened spots.
When beans are done cooking, after about 5 minutes, add garlic and salt to taste. Stir garlic and beans for last 30 seconds to ensure garlic doesn't burn. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.
May be made with any variety of string beans - traditional green beans, Italian flat beans, haricot verts, wax beans - they will all be delicious, though may require slightly different cook times.
