Paula's Fancy Green Beans
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans
2 slices bacon
1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
1/2 cup thin onion wedges
1/2 cup whole cashews
In a small bowl, stir together the teriyaki sauce, honey, and
butter. Fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the lemon juice. Drop
in the beans and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until beans are bright
green. Drain the beans in a colander and then plunge them into the
iced water. Drain again and set aside.
In a skillet, cook the bacon until very crispy, crumble and set
aside. Saute the bell pepper and onion in the hot bacon fat for 2
minutes. Add the beans, cashews, and bacon to the skillet. Add the
teriyaki-honey sauce and toss gently.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
