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

Italian seasoning

Chives

Bacon

Minced garlic or garlic powder (no garlic salt)

Chopped onion or onion powder

Butter

Hot sauce

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.

Thanks!

Lakisha

They sound excellent and it also sounds like a good way to serve spinach.

I didn't think about that. I just steam spinach and other greens like collards and kale and dribble a mix of lemon juice, melted butter, and salt and pepper over them.

I might just try that. Thanks, Ogress.

That sounds good and I agree with PrincessFiona this would also be a good way to cook green leafy veggies. I am thinking baby bok choi.

Yes, you are wacky!

I was looking through the replies, and I had never thought of her recipe for other leafy greens. Yes, Lakisha, look what you started.

It's interesting how one idea, one recipe can be brought to other ingredients, such as the baby bok choy.

Good on you, my sister.

With love,
~Cat

Welcome Lakisha..

I like your recipe. You'll find many of us here are fond of getting our ration of vitamin B I fondly call vitamin Bacon. Most everything is better with bacon.
I also like you nixed garlic salt in favor of fresh garlic or the next best thing, garlic powder. I've often wondered why garlic salt is on the market.

Merry Christmas!
