Garlic Parmesan Green Beans
Green beans, what can I say, it is a staple in most American households, but that does not mean they have to be boring. Nope, shake up your green beans with this mouth watering recipe that is sure to be a hit with your family.
These are simple to make, I often switch it up with the oil or fat I am using depending on what I am going to pair the beans with. You can always take out the parmesan and in it’s place put bacon, which adds a crunchy texture in contrast. Both ways of cooking these beans are a hit with my family and I hope yours too.
- 1-2 packs of Fresh Green Beans
- 1/4 cup Olive oil or Pork Fat [Can be from bacon, ham, or pork chops] or butter
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- Kosher salt
- Fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 cup of parmesan shredded
- 1 cup chicken stock or bone broth
- Clean and snap off the ends of your beans, make sure you rinse them off and pat them dry before cooking.
- Heat your oil/fat in a cast iron skillet to medium heat.
- Once your oil is hot enough, add in the garlic and let it set for a few moments releasing the aroma.
- Add in your first handful of beans [there will be two handfuls/ batches if you have 2 packs of green beans]
- Allow the beans to simmer for 2 minutes with the oil/fat in the pan,
- Optional Add in 1/2 tablespoon butter and allow it to melt over the beans.
- Add in 1/2 cup of your chicken stock/bone broth
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Allow beans to simmer and cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, make sure you stir them every so often to ensure they do not burn.
- Cook to the desired doneness, I say this because I prefer ours a little bit on the crunchy side, but everyone is different.
- Place cooked beans in a bowl and top with shredded parmesan.
- If you have another batch to cook, repeat steps 4-8 until complete.
- Put the remaining batch of beans on the ones in the bowl and cover with a bit more parmesan.
- Plate and serve.
