Texas Roadhouse Green Beans (Copycat)

"We really like these green beans at TRH and after a little searching found this recipe. Recipe is courtesy of WTVR, Richmond, VA. When a friend of mine started working there, I asked if this is how they prepare their green beans and she shook her head yes, but said no with a smile. I have included both variations for this recipe; choose the one to your liking. Cook/simmer time is approximate."

    Very yummy! I took someone's else advice and added a little liquid smoke and Montreal seasoning. I also substituted half the water for low sodium chicken broth. Taste just like texas roadhouse greenbeans

    These were a huge hit for Sunday Dinner. Instead of sugar, I added a few drops of liquid stevia, and added extra green beans since we had a crowd. Even my non-green-bean-eating son in law commented on how good they were, which is impressive!

    Use canned green beans sautee bacon remove modt of the dripping render down a handful of onions until translucent. Then drop green beans in. Stir till coated with bacon grease. Add black pepper and some some garlic. Keep stirring. Simmer for a few minutes and use some liquid smoke about a tablespoon and a teaspoon of Montreal strakseasoning.. Simmer a few minutes and add the crumbled bacon you removed earlier. Let simmer 10-15 minutes and its ready to serve. You guys that are missing the bite or kick try the steak seasoning and liquid smoke. It really kicks it up.
