Place the bacon pieces in a saute pan over medium heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the bacon is about halfway done and it has released some fat.
Add the green beans to the pan, then add the garlic on top of the green beans without stirring.
Place a lid on the saute pan and cook, covered for 3-5 minutes or until the green beans have begun to soften. (note, for softer green beans cook a little longer)
Remove the lid and stir the green beans. Increase heat to high and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
