Lakisha's Seasoned Green Beans
Hi everyone! Cat said some of you were interested in my green beans, so here goes. It's not precise, and all of this is just winging it.
Fresh or canned green beans
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Minced garlic or garlic powder (no garlic salt)
Chopped onion or onion powder
Put the beans with just enough water to cover them into a saucepan with a vented lid. Mom's got those stainless steel pans with glass lids with a small hole in the lid to vent. Cat's got the same ones but a different brand.
Fry some bacon (I used 2 slices today for 2 cans of beans) until it is kind of between soft and hard. Cut the bacon with cleaned kitchen scissors into little pieces a little smaller than a dime, and add this to the pot.
Add all the ingredients to your tastes. The next time I make this I'll refine this with measurements. For today, I just threw in a few dashes of the dry seasonings, cut a palmful of red onion, 1 and one half tablespoons of butter, two pinches of the minced garlic, and a couple dashes of Tabasco sauce (the hot sauce).
Put the beans on low heat. Cat has a gas stove, so I set it at two. Stir them occasionally and heat thoroughly. Once they are heated but not boiling, turn the burner up to five until it bubbles.
Then take the pot off the heat and let it set for a moment and stir it real good, then serve them with a deep slotted spoon onto the plates.
If any of you try this, please let me know how it turns out for you, and let me know about any adjustments you made to make it better.
