These Sauteed Mushrooms Green Beans and Crispy Onions are one of my favorite ways to serve green beans. The key to keeping the crispy fried onions crispy is to add them last minute, just as you’re getting ready to serve.
Don’t over cook the green beans or they start getting mushy and fall apart. If you’re using frozen green beans, Trader Joe’s has some really thin, frozen green beans that taste great. Check out my garlicky breadcrumb green bean recipe.
Sauteed Mushrooms Green Beans and Crispy Onions
These Sauteed Mushrooms Green Beans and Crispy Onions are one of my favorite ways to serve green beans. The key to keeping the crispy fried onions crispy is to add them last minute, just as you're getting ready to serve.
If you're using fresh green beans, clean the beans.
In a large sauce pot, fill half way with water and bring to a boil. Add the green beans. Bring the water back to a boil and then cook for about 6-8 minutes.
Strain the beans. Add them back into the large sauce pot.
Add 2 tbsp of the butter, the olive oil and the almond slices.
Cook over medium heat for another 2-3 minutes, stirring a few times.
With a damp cloth, clean the mushrooms, Chop of the end of the stems and then slice the mushrooms into 1/4 inch slices.
Add the mushrooms to a large frying pan over high heat. Stirring every minute or so. Mushrooms let out a lot of liquid so after a few minutes, drain off most of the liquid.
When the remaining liquid has cooked off, add the remaining 2 tbsp of butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Chop up some fresh Italian parsley.
Add it to the mushrooms about 1 minute before removing from the heat.
Put the mushrooms in a bowl and set aside until you're ready to assemble and serve.
When you're ready to serve, toss the mushrooms and fried onions with the green beans. Add them to your serving dish. Serve immediately.
