Firebirds Wood Fired Grill Signature Spiced Pecan Green Beans
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup spiced pecans (see our recipe here)
Steak seasoning
Bring a pot of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of kosher salt. Add the green beans
and boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately remove green beans and place into a bowl of
ice water. This process is called blanching, which will stop the cooking process and will
help the green beans hold their crunchy texture, plus it helps to keep them bright
green. Next, melt Butter in sauté pan over medium-low heat, add Pecans and cook
until slightly browned. Add green beans, lightly season with the steak seasoning and
toss well.
To make the spiced pecans:
1 pound pecan pieces
3 tablespoons kosher salt
melted butter
1/2 teaspoon ancho chile powder
1/3 cup brown sugar
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and place on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 350
degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every two minutes. Allow to cool and store in an
airtight container for up to two weeks.
