Pan-Fried Butter Beans

Plays: 1651

In this video, you’ll see how to make pan-fried butter beans. Please note that absolutely no actual butter was used in the making of this delicious side. The canned butter beans are fried in healthy olive oil with garlic, red pepper flakes, and fresh herbs. The result? Big creamy beans with crispy, crusty skins. The contrast in textures is perfect! You’ll finish them off with a splash of flavorful white wine vinegar or sherry vinegar to freshen things up and balance the flavors. Watch the video, then get Chef John’s recipe for Pan-Fried Butter Beans. For moister beans, add diced tomatoes or broth. Serve these with grilled or roasted chicken or meats.
