Outback Steakhouse Steamed Green Beans
You can make seasoned steamed green beans like the Outback Steakhouse in your own kitchen. Fresh green beans are steamed, and then seasoned with a garlic butter sauce, and served of fresh. Maggi seasoning is found in a bottle in the ethnic section of your grocery store. It may be found in either the European or Asian parts of your grocery store. Maggi seasoning offers a beefy, smokey, and complex flavor that adds so much to these green beans.
- 1 pound fresh green beans - French style are best
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning - you can substitute with soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
Steam green beans in either a steamer or your microwave until they are just done, as you want them still firm. In my microwave it takes about 2 minutes to steam up the green beans, while the green beans are steaming, begin making your seasoned butter sauce.
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat add 4 tablespoons butter, 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. When the green beans are done, place in a bowl. Add about half of the butter mixture, in the bowl, and add the fresh steamed greens in the bowl. Stir the green beans until they are coated with the butter seasoning.Print Recipe
