Directions:
1. Cook 2 slices bacon in Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer bacon to paper towel–lined plate, leaving fat in pot. Add onion to now-empty pot and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Add green beans, water, remaining 3 slices uncooked bacon, 2 teaspoons salt, and sugar and bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until green beans are very tender, about 45 minutes.

2. Remove lid and discard bacon. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until liquid is reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.(Stir carefully to avoid breaking beans apart.) Transfer to serving bowl. Crumble reserved bacon over top. Serve.
