Steamed Green Beans

Steamed Green Beans

Healthy, easy and delicious. I knew this recipe was a hit when after dinner several family members sat around digging in the bowl eating green beans until none were left!
Serves 8

2 lb bag of whole blue lake greenbeans
Stick of butter
1 Tsp.Smokehouse Maple Seasoning
1/2 Tsp.Salt
1/2 Tsp. Pepper
1 Tsp. Garlic powder
4 TBSP. Brown Sugar


 Wash green beans and drain.
Steam in steamer basket or do what I did and improvise one this way:

Place a heatproof salad plate in the bottom of a large kettle.
Place a few inches of water in pot.
Add green beans.
Cover and steam for 4 minutes. Longer for a softer texture.
Toss a few times while steaming to ensure even cooking.

While beans are steaming melt butter in sauce pan. add brown sugar and stir constantly. Add rest of seasonings and stir well.

When beans are done drain in colander or steamer basket.
Add seasoning mixture to beans and toss well.
Serve hot.
