Cajun-Style Green Beans With Tabasco

Cajun-Style Green Beans With Tabasco created by JackieOhNo

A recipe I found on the floor of a department store while shopping. The Mcllhenny Company, they of celebrated Tabasco fame, included for promotion a free recipe with the purchase of a men's necktie. I have been making this every Thanksgiving for close to ten years now. Can be made vegetarian with the use of vegie soysage or "facon."

ingredients

directions

  • Steam the green beans until just done but still maintaining their bright green color. Drain. Keep warm.
  • In the meantime, in a small pan over medium-high heat cook the salt pork or bacon until crisp. Reserve the fat. (If using vegetarian bacon, you'll need to add a bit of oil to the pan for frying.).
  • Reduce heat, add the minced celery stalks and cook about 2 minutes; adding the garlic and cooking another minute longer. Stir in vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar and TABASCO sauce. Heat through.
  • Remove from heat; stir in celery leaves.
  • Toss with beans to coat. Season with salt and pepper and adjust seasonings if necessary.

    Loved it! My husband thinks that string beans are dull. But he enjoyed it and asked me to keep this recipe! Great job you did in picking up that recipe from the floor! Happy new year to you.

    Wow, this recipe is amazing! So delicious. I used Creole mustard and Louisiana hot sauce to make it a little more "Cajun". No need for salt and pepper.

    I love when you try a recipe and it delivers much more than you expected. This was absolutely delicious! I made this with bacon, which went well with the mustard and sugar to make a tangy, sweet-and-sour-ish sauce. I can see where this would be a nice change of pace on the Thanksgiving table, and I will look forward to making it again then. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT 9.
