Mock Outback Steakhouse Green Beans

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Montana Heart Song

This is the 2nd recipe posted but...more ingredients and silvered almonds as topping are optional. What is nice about this recipe, you can cook beans, drain. and cool. Right before serving, make the cooked dressing, heat the cooked beans and toss with the dressing. The brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic powder make the dressing "pop" and perfect with steak & fish or shellfish.

This w/b bang on had it not been for the placement of soy sauce. Outback uses liquid smoke in their signature side dish. Let's be real tho most of us don't hv a bottle of liquid smoke chillin out w/the ketchup and mustard or spicing it up w/our salt and pepper in the spice cabinet. I've prepared the green beans both ways always doubling it tripling the sauce itself pairing it w/BBQ lemon pepper chicken ths last tm - it makes for a fantastic marinade and kps chicken frm drying out on the grill too. Thank you for posting!
