As close as we'll probably ever get to the real recipe for Outback Steakhouse's string beans.

I cut the sugar in half and added a liquid tsp of Maggi seasoning. Exactly outback, I swear. First I tried soy (and even a lil maple syrup) but nope, this is it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the green beans for 8 minutes.
  2. Add cool water to the green beans in order to cease the cooking process. (This allows for crispy crunchiness instead of squishy beans.).
  3. Drain the water from the beans and set aside.
  4. Just before sitting down to the table (about 5 minutes) put the beans, the sugar, and the butter in a saute pan and saute them for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Salt and Pepper to taste and Enjoy!
