Saucy Green Beans

This is my favorite way to cook green beans. I think the original recipe called them Chinese Style green beans but around here, they’ve just become known as “those really good green beans with the sauce”. Who needs a fancy name?!

These green beans are from the market but I can’t recall the farm.

Start by “topping and tailing” your beans. (I adore this phrase and, just so you know, it’s best  said in a British accent 😉 )

Cook your green beans in a mix of butter and oil. The butter helps you get good browning. We used butter from Eileen the cow over at Bonnie Blue Farm

Let your been cook on medium for about 10 minutes or until they get lots of really good browning. Add the sauce which is equal parts soy sauce, honey and water. Once you pour the sauce on, turn the heat off and stir well. You might want to wear an oven mitt, it can get a bit steamy!
