Green beans are one of my favorite vegetables because they pair well with a wide variety of ingredients. While this recipe emphasizes the combination of carmelized onions and soy sauce, the addition of two or three Tablespoons of brown sugar will instantly transform the beans from salty to sweet. Either variety is a great accompaniment to the Honey Soy Flank Steak.
Soy Green Beans
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
1 lb. of green beans
1 large white onion
2 cloves garlic
Begin by cutting the stems off of the green beans and briefly boiling them for 5 minutes.
Chop the onions and garlic together.
Heat a large skillet and add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the pan along with the chopped onions and garlic.
Allow the onions to cook until they become translucent.
Add the semi-cooked green beans to the pan and add ¼ cup of soy sauce plus 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt.
Simmer the beans on low heat until the beans have softened slightly, but are not wilted.
