Green beans are in season, which means I usually grab a pound or so every few days at the grocery store. Although I often grill my green beans if I’m already outside grilling, this copycat Outback Steakhouse green bean recipe is a big favorite of ours. The beans take only a few minutes to make.

Add Some Orange Things

You can also add carrots to these copycat Outback Steakhouse green beans for a great twist on the restaurant classic. Just peel a few carrots and slice them thin. Put them into the boiling water for a minute or two before adding the beans so they all come out done and tender at the same time. You want the ‘bite’ to be the same between them.

I actually use my good ole trusty Dutch oven to make these beans. I was able to make the entire thing in a single pot. It’s nice and big and sturdy. That extra weight helps it maintain and distribute heat perfectly. As an added bonus, it’s actually pretty easy to clean up too!

For another variation, and one with a little kick, toss in a few pinches (or more) of dried red pepper flake when you saute the beans. Also try my awesome green bean recipe.
