Brown Butter Dijon Green Beans (The Best Green Beans Ever)
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed of their ends
  • kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • zest of one lemon + 1 tsp juice, for garnish (optional)
  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter and allow to melt. Once the bubbling subsides and brown bits appear in the butter, add the green beans right away and a sprinkling of kosher salt. Toss to coat the beans in the butter and allow to cook for 3 minutes, until the beans are bright green and starting to show signs of browning.
  2. Add the garlic to the skillet with the beans and allow to cook for a minute, stirring every so often. Add the dijon mustard and toss again to coat everything.
  3. Remove to a serving dish and garnish with lemon zest and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
