BBQ Green Beans



Today, we cleaned out the freezer.

The big freezer.

The one in the garage.

It needed to be defrosted, which took a good amount of time since it is in the 30's today!

Ice doesn't melt too fast when it's cold enough to freeze!

Along with the defrosting came the Mr. being all productive!

Like making me create a list of all the things in the freezer.

So, I willingly agreed!

As a result, we're having for dinner tonight something from . . .

the freezer!

I surely wasn't planning on having brisket tonight . . .

or tomorrow night,

or the night after that!

I just went to the grocery store yesterday and I clearly didn't buy anything that would be a great side to brisket!

However, I remember Auntie Ronda making a BBQ green bean bundle.

But we're just eating -- not being fancy tonight,

so I took a spin off of her idea and put these ingredients together for our side to go along with our brisket!

BBQ Green Beans

2 cans green beans, drained
1/2 onion, sautéed
oil (amount depends on how big your "half" of the onion is!)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

In a large skillet, heat the oil and sauté the onion until fragrant, but not exactly translucent.

Add the drained green beans and the remaining ingredients.

Heat until the brown sugar is dissolved and continue to stir until the ingredients are well mixed and the green beans are coated.

Reduce the heat and continue to cook until the sauce is reduced by half or until your liking.

Serve hot.
