Cedar Planked Green Beans

Cedar Planked Green Beans

Cedar planked green beans are so good I think I could actually just have them by themselves for dinner. That perfect crispy crunch. Fresh green bean flavor. A light hint of cedar flavor and aroma.

  • Soak a large cedar plank (or two smaller ones) in water for 30-60 minutes.
  • Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with cold water and ice.
  • Bring 4 quarts of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the beans and boil until 3-5 minutes or until bright green and crisp-tender.
  • Immediately drain the beans and transfer to the ice water bath.
  • Drain the beans well and spread out onto a kitchen towel or paper towels and pat dry.
  • Transfer beans to a bowl. Add olive oil, nuts, and salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat.
  • Fire up your grill for high-heat direct cooking. Place the plank over the fire and lightly char on both sides.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Add beans and nuts to plank.
  • Cook 10-12 minutes or until the beans are done and just starting to brown on the edges.
