I grill just about every other night so I've tried to perfect how to cook certain vegetables along with the main course. I've found they cook to my liking when I put then on while the grill is heating up to get them going. It gives them a good 10 minutes for extreme heat before moving them aside for the main dish. They are basically roasted and steamed at the same time. Try adding some onion or tossing with lemon pepper before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put green beans on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to fold and seal. You may need to fold two sheets together.
  2. Note: I also use one sheet of foil to set the pouch on. This way if any liquid seeps out or it pulls apart it doesn't leave a mess.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the beans.
  4. Add minced garlic and crushed red pepper, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Toss green beans with tongs until well coated.
  6. Add water and fold aluminum foil together at the top and pinch the sides closed.
  7. Cook green bean pouch on the grill.
  8. Notes: When I put my main dish on the grill I open the beans and toss with tongs. If all the water is gone, add a little more, reseal and move to top rack. If I lift the grill lid to flip main dish I usually give the pouch a shake.

These were so good. I just put them in a grill pan on the grill and they turned out perfectly

I ate these like candy!! Awesome! Prefer them in the foil, some char but not excessive. I even enjoyed the few leftovers cold.
