Bacon. Mmmmm, bacon.....

Okay. Go buy some fresh string beans, enough to fill a big pot. Snap 'em and then steam them just enough to where they're tender but still good and firm.
While the beans are steaming, fry up a pound of bacon (Bacon. Mmmmm, bacon......) so that it's crispy and no fat on it. Don't drain it, you want bacon grease still on it. Crumble it up.
Take a couple of tablespoons of melted butter and drizzle it over the beans. Then take some garlic pepper (I use a lot, maybe a half a palm full) sprinkle it freely over the beans, then take your bacon and mix all that shit together.
Cover and put in the refrigerator. Let it sit for 3 or 4 hours to blend all the flavors.
Reheat, serve with ice cold beer.
