Beer and Garlic Grilled Green Beans Recipe

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!
