Smokey Green Beans

This is the side dish that I served with the BBQ bean sandwiches the other night. They were good! I used two packages of frozen green beans. They weren’t too smokey, so next time I would add more liquid smoke. My kids liked these!

Smokey Green Beans


24 oz package frozen green beans (I love the Trader Joes french green beans)
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 tsp liquid smoke (depending on how smokey you want them)


Place frozen green beans in a large skillet over high heat, add 1/3 cup of water. Cover and bring to a boil.
Cook green beans 6-10 minus, or until no longer frozen and they reach desired tenderness. For this recipe, I prefer them “cooked to death” but you may want them more crisp.
Once desired tenderness is reached, if there is any water left in the skillet, boil on high until water is evaporated. It should only take a minute, if any water remains.
Once water is evaporated, add soy sauce and liquid smoke to the skillet with the green beans. Saute over high heat until all liquid has been absorbed by green beans and is evaporated. Serve hot.
