In a non-stick CanCooker cook bacon in olive oil over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Pour butter beans into bacon and drippings; cook for 3 minutes; toss lightly. Season with salt and black pepper; cook 3 more minutes to blend flavors.

Stir garlic into beans and cook about 30 seconds. Toss arugula into mixture and cook until wilted; remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and serve.
