So I used the power of Google to help me find an imposter recipe to re-create their famous green beans. And it was a spot on match!
- 2 (16 ounce) cans of green beans, drained
- 2 cups water
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 4 ounces bacon, diced and raw (I used about 5 strips)
- 4 ounces onion
- Drain green beans and set aside.
- Mix water, sugar and pepper until well incorporated. Set aside.
- Preheat your cooking pan to medium high heat.
- Dice the raw bacon into equal size pieces and throw them in your pan. Continually stir to keep baking from burning.
- Once bacon is cooked, add the onions and cook until they are tender.
- Now that the onions are tender, add the liquid mixture.
- Stir the mixture until incorporated. Bring mixture to a boil and then return the heat to simmer. Simmer until ready to serve.
These were AWESOME! In fact, the longer they simmered the more it seemed to resemble the amazing flavors that I have found at Texas Roadhouse. The bacon gives them a little salty smoky flavor and the sugar is just enough so that you know it's there. Serve them up using a ladel or non-slotted spoon so you can enjoy the broth with them.
If you love green beans, try this easy option.
