  • 1 lb green beans fresh, cleaned
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup stock vegetable, chicken, or beef


  • Melt butter in a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Sauté garlic in butter for 60-90 seconds - be sure it doesn't burn!
  • Add cleaned fresh green beans to the pan and with tongs coat the beans with the butter and garlic.
  • Add mustard, salt, and onion powder and with tongs coat green beans well. Then add vinegar and let cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add stock and then cover pan with lid and let cook for 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove lid, stir beans, and serve!


Use whatever stock you have: Vegetable, Chicken, or Beef.
Fresh green beans are best, but if you do use frozen, be sure to get beans labeled whole or haricot vert.
