Fried Green Beans

I love using weird ingredients. Maybe some of you already incorporate ghee into your cooking. I’ve been using it for years and I love it. Ghee is just clarified butter. I’m not sure of the exact science behind it, but from what I’ve seen, even folks with dairy intolerances can use this in place of butter. It’s cooked down and shelf stable. It also tastes like movie theater butter to me, so WIN! (I get commission from Amazon if you want to try ghee from this link!

Here’s one way I use a strange ingredient like ghee:

Melt about two tablespoons ghee into a skillet. Let it heat up.

Pour a bag of thinly sliced green beans into the melted ghee. I add my bag frozen. I like to buy the little skinny frozen green beans from Trader Joe’s. But these are French cut green beans from Kroger. They cook up very quickly even from frozen.

I add salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder to the beans.

Cook on medium heat and stir every few minutes. I let them cook until they start to crisp up. They are delicious when they’re a little crispy! Just be careful that they don’t burn.

My little boys love these! Before long I will have to fix two bags of beans, they disappear so fast!
