These 15 Minute Mustard Green Beans are for the mustard lover and great if you want something different for your holiday green beans. They're super fast to make, free up oven space, and can be made and on the table in no time!
Friends. Let me introduce you to our new favorite green bean side dish. These 15 Minute Mustard Green Beans have been made now 4, 5, maybe 6 times this month? I've lost count. That's how much we love them!
Ok, to be honest, we are also a Dijon Mustard lovin' family. It was one of the first condiments we started making! So if Dijon mustard is not your jam, these are not your green beans. But if you also love the tangy, sharp, spicy flavor of Dijon, then this recipe is for you. The green beans are still crunchy, the Dijon mustard flavor is strong, and well, done in 15 minutes? How can it get any better?
Simple, fresh ingredients. Per uz here.
- Green Beans - Fresh are of course best! But see below for notes about frozen.
- Dijon Mustard - We love using our own because it's so easy to make!
- Stock - Vegetable stock to keep it vegetarian or chicken stock or beef stock if that's what you have! Or course you know you can make your own of any!
- Butter - Salted is what we usually use, but if you only have unsalted no problem.
- White Vinegar - You could also use brown vinegar or white wine vinegar if that's what you have. White vinegar will have the strongest vinegar taste, but that's what I prefer to use to balance the Dijon.
- Garlic - Fresh is of course preferred but you could also use jarred minced or even powdered if that's all your have.
- Onion Powder and Salt
Fresh vs. Frozen
Can you use frozen? Of course! We prefer fresh for this recipe - especially now when green bean casseroles are king. But if you don't have fresh, no problem. You can use frozen, but just keep in mind:
Look For: Haricot Vert or Whole green beans.
Avoid: Cut green beans and French cut green beans.
What about Canned? Can I use canned green beans? Nope. Doesn't work for this one.
How many steps can there be in a 15 minute recipes? Not many.
Step 1: Melt butter and cook garlic. I know you all don't need to know what that looks like, this is just a garlic cooking in melted butter appreciation photo. Can you smell it? Ahhh.
Step 2: Add the fresh cleaned green beans to your pan and then with tongs, coat them with the butter and garlic.
Step 3: Add Dijon, salt, and onion powder and coat green beans and then add vinegar and cook for a few minutes.
Step 4: Add stock and cover with a lid and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
And done! See all that Dijon mustard? Yup. This is not for the faint of mustard heart. These 15 Minute Mustard Green Beans are packed full of flavor - mostly the Dijon mustard flavor.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that there are not mushy green beans. They have crunch, flavor, and oh hey have I mentioned how quickly they're made? 😉
If you don't have room in you oven for that classic green bean casserole, this Christmas, then this is your recipe. Made quickly, on the stove top, and you know what? Re-heated after cooked? No problem. My husband said that he even liked the more the next day. So there ya go.
