2 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. brown sugar

1/2 Cup chopped pecans

Pinch of Kosher salt

Snip the ends off the green beans, wash and drain. Place the beans into a pot of boiling water.  Boil, for about 8 minutes and drain. Melt the butter and brown sugar in a skillet. Add in the pecans and drained green beans. Sprinkle with the Kosher salt and cook, tossing occasionally for about 5 or 6 minutes. The green beans will be nice and crispy, as well as tasty.

The brown sugar will add the slightest little sweet glaze to the pecans.

  3. Yummy, I made them today! I had to use walnuts because I realized all my pecans were gone:( But it still tasted great! Missed the pecans, though!

    1. I’m glad to hear that Zan! We love walnuts too, may have to try that. We live in the south where pecan orchards abound so pecans are usually in the cabinet.

      1. Oh men..I need to move to your area, I love pecans. But you know, I discovered I did have pecans in the pantry after I made it. Oh well.

        Hubby really enjoyed the slight sweetness in this recipe!

        1. Zan, I’m so glad you stopped back by and told me you made the Pecan Glazed green beans. I’m also happy that your husband liked them. Now you have a new family favorite with pecans or walnuts, whichever you prefer 🙂

We enjoying hearing from you!
