Recipe Monday: Cranberry Green Beans

August 20, 2012

In our house, this is a staple side dish for my cranberry brie chicken. I’ll share that recipe later. This one is simple and delicious. It serves four with no problem.

1lbs fresh green beans, tips removed
1C dried cranberries
1/2C 100% cranberry juice
4TBSP butter
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add dried cranberries and cranberry juice. Cook for two minutes. Add green beans, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until green beans are crisp tender. Don’t overcook your green beans. It’s such a sad thing to have limp green beans. 😦 Serve immediately with any main dish you like.

I definitely plan to make these for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year for my family. 😀
