Snow Peas with Bacon

Snow Peas With Bacon

This snow pea dish uses a Chinese cooking method with firmly Western flavors. Don’t cook the bacon so much it gets crispy, it should be a little supple.


  • 1 lb snow peas
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 4 slices bacon, sliced thin
  • 4 shallots, chopped
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • Pepper or chile flakes to taste


  1. 1

    Wash snow peas and remove stems.

  2. 2

    Fill a wok halfway with water. Add salt and bring to a boil. Cook snow peas in water for 2-3 minutes (the time it takes to bring the water back to a boil).

  3. 3

    Transfer to a colander and let drain for 1 minute.

  4. 4

    Wipe the wok. Place on medium heat. Add bacon and shallot. Cook for 1 minute, the time it takes for the shallots to start sizzling. Add the well-drained snow peas and the remaining ingredients.

  5. 5

    Stir well and cook for 30 seconds more.
