A delicious pairing of salty pancetta and crisp french beans


  • 250g extra fine beans
  • 4 slices of pancetta
  • 50g butter
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce


Preheat the oven to 200 C.

Top, tail and wash the beans. Blanch in lightly salted water for around 4 minutes so that they are still crisp.

While they blanch, melt the butter and mix it with the sugar, salt and soy sauce.

Drain the beans well and place around 10 on each pancetta slice, then wrap the pancetta around them and place on a baking tray covered by baking paper. Brush with the soy sauce and butter mixture.

Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the pancetta is crisp and golden.
