“These green beans were the side dish my grandmother served most often because we all love them. They are done but not mushy like canned beans.” - by Shearyah Hawkins
Original recipe yields 4 to 6 servings
- In a stainless steel pot over medium-high heat, combine green beans, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook, covered, until the beans begin to sweat. Remove lid and stir occasionally until beans are tender.
- When the beans and spices have begun to 'burn' on the bottom of the pan, which will lend a grilled flavor, stir in the olive oil and turn off heat. Cover, and let stand a few minutes. Scrape the bottom of the pan to incorporate the 'burnt' spices. Beans should have a dark, caramel color, but not black.

"After reading the other posts, I was NOT going to sacrifice my pans for a 'decent' dish. SO, I sprayed it with cooking spray, then let everything get nice and toasty. It worked fine and I didn't los..." See moree my favorite saute pan. The next time I made it, I revamped the entire recipe by adding fresh garlic and onion and a small squirt of lemon juice to 'carmelize everything instead of blacken everything. That just tasted better for us. Thanks for the jumpstart!"
"I was a little scared to try this but I am glad I did! This was very tasty. I will warn you, your pan will be very dirty! But here is a great tip... Put some dish soap in the pan and a few inches of..." See more hot water. Boil on the stove top and the burnt on spices with just lift off. You may need to scrape the pan a few times as well."
