Recipe 16: Steakhouse Green Beans

I love the green beans they serve at Texas Road House in Durham, NC. Green beans that I cook at home never taste as good. But, the day I cooked the rib eyes for this blog, I decided to give it another try.

And I think I finally came up with a recipe that comes pretty darn close! The trick is adding the beans to the onions and bacon, instead of the other way around. The red onion also gives it a much better flavor than the sweet white onions.

Here are the ingredients:

1 can cut green beans
1/4 cup of chopped red onion
1-2 pieces bacon, chopped
tip of a teaspoon of minced garlic
salt & ground pepper

Step 1: Chop onion and bacon.

Step 2: Heat frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, bacon, garlic, and a small pat of butter. Saute bacon and onions until bacon is browned and onion transparent. Then carefully pour out most of the fat and return the pan to the burner.

Step 3: Add the can of green beans, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer for 10 minutes

Step 4: Remove from heat and serve with slotted spoon.

Goes great with steak, meat loaf, ribs, chicken, you name it. Let me know what you think!


The class I created this blog for ends this week. I'm going to keep this blog going and continue to post recipes. I may not be able to add a new one each week, but I'm going to try to add a least one or two a month, so please keep coming back!
