Easy Green Beans

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kelly M.

These beans are very good and so easy. Slightly sweet with a hint of mustard. You can use butter or oil in place of bacon fat, but the bacon fat really makes it tasty.

This made a nice change from the regular way I prepare green beans. I had whole frozen green beans on hand and used those after thawing them. They worked out fine. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam or boil green beans until just underdone to your liking (I make mine crisp-tender).
  2. In a medium skillet, heat bacon fat over medium high heat.
  3. You only want the fat to coat the bottom of the pan, the beans should not be swimming in it.
  4. Add beans and saute, stirring to coat with bacon fat, about 2 minutes, until beans start to sizzle.
  5. Sprinkle with sugar and stir to coat, about 1 minute.
  6. Lower heat and add mustard and worcestershire sauce, stirring well, and saute for another 2 minutes or so.
  7. Serve hot.
