Sautee Green Beans

Sautee Green Beans

I love green beans!

I’ll eat them all sorts of ways: fried, boiled, steamed, southern style, (well except in green bean casserole—I can’t stand that stuff).  Anyway, I’ve been trying to get our family to eat healthier and cooking green beans in bacon grease, although it tastes good, isn’t very good for you!

So, instead of sauteeing green beans with a slice of bacon I decided to put a yummy spin on them that you’re sure to love!

Today I’m going to share with you….

The BEST Green Bean Recipe EVER!

My family went nuts over these Skillet Green Beans!  They actually ate ALL of them and there were NO leftovers…. which never happens in our house when it comes to veggies!
And, I had them ready in about 10 minutes!  Wooohooooo!!!

1 Bag of Frozen French Cut Green Beans or you can use fresh (fresh take about 10 minutes longer)
2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 TBS Lemon Pepper
1/2 TBS Mrs. Dash Seasoning

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet (learn to season it perfectly here), add green beans, sprinkle with spices.  Cook for about 10 minutes or until green beans get to desired softness.  Yep, that’s it….. EASY PEASY!!!!
I love to make these with my Oktoberfest Baked Chicken or my Rice Crispy Chicken and with the Ultimate Potato Casserole….. YUMMY and SIMPLE Dinner!

[…] the perfect dish to make with mashed potatoes and a yummy Southern vegetable like Black Eyed Peas, Skillet Green Beans, or Summer Squash.  And this dish heats back up perfectly….so make extra for leftovers! […]

I need to share this.. A friend of mine who was from China once made green beans, and I never tasted beans so good! So he told me how to make them. So simple.. You take green beans ends trimmed. I keep them whole.. or you can use frozen. Get a skillet super hot, with oil maybe three or four tablespoons.. (eyeball it based on how many beans your cooking)... I prefer to use peanut oil it gets super hot and it's healthy.

Drop the beans into the hot oil and start to stir-fry them. I'm gonna guess total fry time here say 6 to 7 minutes tops! So half way through the cook time (3 minutes in) throw a hand full of sugar on the beans. Finish cooking for say another three minute stir-frying and tossing the beans.. That's it! Plate and dive in. Sugar and green beans nothing else!! Absolutely To Die For!!

Oh, yum!! I love green beans as well. Try also throwing in a clove of garlic and some oregano and parmesan cheese. That is my favorite!

I love green beans too, and this sounds like such a delicious way to cook them. I always have frozen green beans on hand so I look forward to trying it soon. Thank you for sharing this post with The Gallery of Favorites.
