  • saucepan


  • 3-4 cups green beans, fresh, cut
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup soy sauce


  • Heat water in a pot large enough to hold all of your beans until boiling.  
  • Wash, trim and cut your green beans into bite sized pieces while you are waiting for the water to boil. 
  • When water is boiling and your beans are prepared dump them into the boiling water for about 5 minutes or bright green. 
  • While beans are boiling grab a medium bowl and combine soy sauce, melted butter and brown sugar.  Stir until blended.  Set aside.  
  • When beans are cooked drain them in a colander in the sink or how ever you prefer.  Return beans to the pot and add the soy mixture on top of the beans.  Toss beans in mixture until they are all coated.  Serve immediately. 
  • I always serve this dish with rice.  I usually serve the beans beside or on top of the rice with a little extra sauce drizzled all over!
