Fire Day Friday: Grilled Thai Style Green Beans

I love preparing green beans on the grill.  Honestly, it’s my favorite way to enjoy them.  But, I don’t usually get too creative with them when preparing them….So when I saw Mary at One Perfect Bite post her recipe for Thai Style Green Beans, I knew I was going to have to work on jazzing my grilled green beans up.

This is a simple little dish that can be made in the oven or on the stove, but really…. you just gotta try them on the grill.  You may never want them another way again.  Serve these along side my Vietnamese Spiced Pork Chops and Sweet Chili Sauce and you have got yourself a fantastic summer meal!

Printable Recipe 
1/4-1/2 pound green beans
1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon hoisin
1 teaspoon creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon water
1 teaspoon sweet chili sauce
salt and pepper

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Place the green beans in a large bowl.  Mix together all remaining ingredients until well combined.  Pour over green beans and toss to coat.

Fold a 36×18-inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18-inch square.  Spray square with non-stick cooking spray.  Place green beans in the middle of the foil and bring together two opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold.  Fold remaining edges together and enclose beans, leaving space for steam to build up.  Place packet on preheated grill and grill for 15-20 minutes, flipping packet over once.  Carefully remove from grill and foil packet.  Enjoy!


Whoa…I’ve never thought of grilling green beans before! That’s brilliant! I hope they have green beans at the Farmer’s Market this afternoon because I’m pinning this one to make this weekend. We love anything Asian. Thank you!
