Green bean blue jean

My parents have our family over almost every Sunday.  It is a great way to end the weekend, catch up with the family, and have a great meal!  This weekend’s meal was so good, I wanted to share.  Grilled, marinated chicken, corn pudding, and green beans!

The chicken was marinated in this cilantro lime concoction from Paula Deen.


This is a great way to dress up your green beans!  Blue jeans optional.

Jean’s Green Beans

  •                     1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  •                     3 tablespoons olive oil
  •                     3 cloves garlic, sliced
  •                     1 pinch salt
  •                     1 pinch ground black pepper
  •                     1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (I used Tarragon vinegar.  I imagine any flavored vinegar would be great.)
  •                     3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1.                     Set a steamer basket insert into a large saucepan and fill with water to a level just below the steamer. Bring to a boil. Add green beans, and steam to your desired degree of tenderness, or about 5 minutes.
  2.                     Once the beans have cooked, transfer them to a serving bowl. Toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, vinegar, and  Parmesan cheese. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove garlic slices and serve.
