Cooking radishes in bacon drippings mellows the flavor and tempers their bite. The crispy bacon gives the dish a rich, meaty flavor that is complemented by garlic and thyme. Serve this easy side dish alongside pork chops or chicken.

  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 12 ounces radishes, quartered
  • 6 medium shallots, quartered
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1½ tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons unsalted butter


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the drippings in the pan. Add radishes and shallots to the pan and cook, undisturbed, until slightly charred on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir and continue to cook until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, butter and the reserved bacon. Garnish with more thyme, if desired, and serve immediately.

So delicious! I’ve never sautéed radishes like that. They tasted like potatoes which is why my kids were willing to try them. Highly recommend making this dish. I will def be making again! Yum!
