How to Make Terrie's Fancy Green Beans
- Preheat Oven to 400 degrees farenheit.
In a large pot over high heat, bring 5 quarts of water to a boil. Add the cleaned and trimmed green beans and let cook for 3 minutes, until the beans turn bright green. Drain the beans and plunge them directly into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and put onto a flat baking sheet (like a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet)that has been lightly greased with some bacon grease. Add the onions, garlic and red bell pepper. Toss all the vegetables together with the olive oil. Add some salt & pepper. Put into oven and let cook about 15 minutes, then turn the beans with spatula to allow the vegetables to carmelize. Let them cook about 10 more minutes then add the bacon & the nuts. Add the sauce mixture & serve.
- Sauce: mix together the soy sauce and the hoisin sauce.
