Quick Zesty Green Beans51 Reviews
“Here's a change of pace: crispy stir-fried beans that are excellent as an appetizer or side dish. Green vegetables are rich in antioxidants and tied to lower risks for certain cancers.” - by USA WEEKEND columnist Jean Carper
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
- Add green beans, return to a boil and cook 1 minute; the beans should still be crisp. Drain the beans; don't rinse.
- In a large skillet or wok, add oil. Heat until very hot (the skillet is ready when a drop of water in the oil sizzles). Add beans and cook about 1 minute, turning often with tongs or spatula. Sprinkle on pecans and Old Bay. Turn the beans and pecans to coat with oil and spices; cook about 2 minutes more, or until beans and nuts are slightly browned. Salt to taste and serve.

"I used EVOO instead of canola oil only because that was all I had on hand. I did not have Old Bay on hand but I did have homemade cajun seasoning that I used in equal amounts. We LOVED these green bea..." See morens. They were anything but average for us."
"I never thought of using Old Bay on green beans. I loved it! I omitted the nuts and added bacon bits and it was great! I made this with the Spinach Stuffed Chicken and it was a great meal!..." See more"
"This was quite good! I made some changes. I heated about 1/2Tbsp of olive oil, sauteed some diced onion and garlic for a few seconds, added 1/2Tbsp butter, Then I added the vegetables (I'd half cook..." See moreed them in the steamer). I added some julienned carrots and yellow peppers to the green beans for extra vitamins and color. I made them for Father's Day and my family loved them. Even my notoriously picky sister asked for the recipe. I almost fell over in shock."
