Holiday Green Beans
Combine the teriyaki sauce and honey in a small bowl.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add beans and cook until the beans are bright green (about 4 minutes.) Drain the beans in a colander and transfer to an ice bath. Drain again and set aside.
Using a large sauté pan over medium high heat, add the butter and oil – then the bell pepper and onion – and sauté until tender (about 4 minutes.) Add the beans, nuts and teriyaki-honey mixture and toss gently. Season with salt and pepper.
COOKS NOTE: The teriyaki sauce is very subtle and gives a wonderful flavor combined with the honey. It does not give it a Asian taste.
* Can use pecans, cashews or walnuts, broken in pieces)
