My mother in law recently moved in with us, so I'm fixing some things that I had never tried nor heard of before. Grilled green beans had always been one of those I had heard but never wanted to try and fix it. Well after some talking she convinced me of at attempting them. Well that was a night I won't forget, after many storms all week I thought I was safe at firing up the old grill, boy was I wrong. LOL. Any who cooking out in a rain storm with gusty winds is not favorable on a grill, but I had already began grilling so there was no stopping. The beans came out good and we all had a nice laugh as I walked in looking like a drowned rat. Here's my simple recipe for grilled green beans, if you wanted a extra kick try adding in some red pepper flakes.


1 pound of green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon garlic
1 tsp salt and pepper
1 tablespoon water

Using aluminum foil make a pocket for green beans, I laid the foil flat, placed the beans and all ingredients and pinch sides and folded the top of foil. Make sure you have extra room for steaming and heat expansion.  Fire up the old grill, whether charcoal or gas it doesn't matter as soon as the grill is flaming throw the pack on the grill. Cook green beans 20-25 minutes, shaking bag at least once to shift the beans around. Flip bag of beans at least once to get a all over even cook.

I used a grill veggie plate, a metal plate that has holes in it. It really helped in fixing these beans and not having to worry about losing or dropping any beans while stirring and flipping the bag.
