Outback Steakhouse Green Beans
Al dente green beans are smothered in a garlicky buttery sauce slightly sweetened with brown sugar. Yes, it tastes as great as it sounds!
- 1 pound green beans, fresh
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning or soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
Steam green beans in either a steamer or your microwave until they are just done, you want them still firm. In my microwave it takes about 2 minutes to steam up the green beans, while the green beans are steaming, begin your seasoned butter sauce.
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat add 4 tablespoons butter, 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. When the green beans are done, place in a bowl. Add about half of the butter mixture, in the bowl, and add the fresh steamed greens in the bowl. Stir the green beans until they are coated with the butter seasoning
