Beer and Garlic Grilled Green Beans Recipe
We use the grill for just about every dinner we make, year round. We usually stick to our favorites, but every once in a while I get a bug to try something new. Tonight’s bug resulted in a new favorite recipe that will be sure to be as popular for you as it was for me!
*TIP* Using the grill instead of the oven is a great way to beat the summer heat and keep your house cool. We made this side dish alongside a rack of ribs and some “baked beans” we fudged by adding brown sugar, garlic and onions to a can of black beans. Even though the meal was thrown together last minute, it turned out to be a big hit that we will probably be having again VERY soon.
Note: I originally intended to use white wine in this recipe but all we had in the fridge was a Belgian Ale. Turns out – it worked fantastic!
