Paula Deen’s Honey Balsamic Green Beans

I will never make greens beans another way again – these are too freakin’ good!  Truth be told, I’ve never made a Paula Deen recipe, and never wanted to before; but when I saw this one it seemed like something that could be really tasty.  And the recipe didn’t call for a pound of butter or 2 cups of mayonnaise like her’s usually do.  🙂

First, wash and snap a bunch of green beans.

Toss them into a pot of boiling water for about 3 – 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, saute some chopped garlic in olive oil.  I added in a pat of butter as an ode to Miss Paula.

When the garlic is just slightly browned, add in the blanched green beans and some balsamic vinegar and honey.  Yum-o!

Toss together in a medium high skillet for about 5 – 8 minutes to fully cook.

I can’t even tell you how much I love these things! I’ve been snacking on them cold for the past few days, they are that good.  Enjoy!
