Asian Grilled Green Beans

Since there are surely a few grilling weeks left in this season (even here in the Northern Midwest) I wanted to bring you another recipe repeat. These green beans will liven up your dinner table with a little kick and lots of great flavor. Pair them with any kind of meat, and feel your taste buds sing!

Asian Grilled Green Beans

1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
8 medium fresh mushrooms, quartered, or 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms

In a small bowl, combine sugar, oil, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes. Whisk well to combine. In a large bowl, combine the beans, onions and mushrooms. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and stir well to coat.

Place half of the vegetables on a double thickness of heavy duty foil (about 18 inches square), fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Repeat with other half of vegetables.

Grill, covered, for 18-20 minutes or until beans are tender. Open packages carefully to let steam escape.


  1. Sauteed green beans have to be one of my favorite side dishes. This looks incredible. Yummy!

  2. Really great sounding recipe, thanks! These sound like a perfect side dish for just about any meat, I think I'm gonna try them with some steaks
