I pulled this one off of the Food Network web site. I'm planning to test drive it for Thanksgiving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the teriyaki sauce, honey, and butter.
  2. Fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the lemon juice. Drop in the beans and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until beans are bright green. Drain the beans in a colander and then plunge them into the iced water. Drain again and set aside.
  4. In a skillet, cook the bacon until very crispy, crumble and set aside. Saute the bell pepper and onion in the hot bacon fat for 2 minutes. Add the beans, cashews, and bacon to the skillet. Add the teriyaki-honey sauce and toss gently.

Loved these, so much flavor going there that I omitted the bacon, no regrets.

Wonderful dish for entertaining, especially Christmas, this recipe permits fine-tuning of kitchen timing. Yes, I drool over great veggies! I paired this with Recipe #283215 #283215 which was a mistake as both had definite tastes in incompatible directions: Mandarin vs Italian/Greek. Serve this with a plainer meat, or stir-fry some tofu to make this a complete meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe, PickyEater. Made for Secret Ingredient Tag, QI=Butter.
