Keto Instant Pot Bacon Mushroom Green Beans is a quick and easy, keto, low carb, and paleo side dish that has so much flavor.
Keto Instant Pot Bacon Mushroom Green Beans is one of my family’s favorite keto side dishes made in the instant pot and pretty much the only way I can get them to eat green beans.
The instant pot perfectly steams the green beans without making them mushy or discolored.
When I was a kid growing up in the ’70s, I was never too fond of green beans.
It was much later in life that I realized that I like green beans and I only disliked them in the past was because we only were served canned green beans.
Even though we grew our green beans in our garden, we always canned them so we could have them year-round, much to my dismay, lol. They were kind of mushy in texture and green, brownish color.
Later in life, someone convinced me to try steam green beans with butter, and I instantly changed my mind about green beans.
I started enjoying recipes like green beans almondine and other green bean dishes, but this mushroom bacon version is my absolute favorite!

Great! Used bacon bits because that’s what I had and half an onion since it needed to be used. Super tasty!
Great idea to steam the green beans first before frying with rest of the ingredients. I love this flavour combination.
