In the South we typically cook our green beans to death. Don’t get me wrong, I love them cooked to death. I grew up eating them that way and still cook them that way myself on occasion.
I love to roast any vegetable and green beans are no exception. I’m new to steaming them though. When I finally figured out how long I needed to cook these they were fabulous!! (I steamed them about 8 minutes in the microwave.) I can’t wait to make them again.
- 24-oz. fresh green beans
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar or Splenda brown sugar blend
- ½ tsp. soy sauce
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
- Steam green beans on stove or in microwave until tender crisp. While steaming, prepare the sauce.
- In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat add butter, soy sauce, Splenda brown sugar blend, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. When the green beans are done, place in a bowl. Add the butter mixture and toss to coat the green beans.
