Tasty Portuguese Green Beans Recipes

Green beans recipes can be found everywhere but what I would like to do is to include here delicious green beans recipes. Green beans are wonderfully nutritious, but many people are also concerned with taste and eating pleasure, not just nutrition value. This means that the best way for people to enjoy green beans is preparing them in ways that they taste good.

Boiling, steaming or microwaving green beans are normal ways to cook them but probably the greatest way to preserve the best nutritional attributes of green beans, is to stir-frying them. In any case it is important to prepare green beans recipes using the smallest amount of water as possible and cook them in small amounts as well. This is so, because they cook quicker and taste better. For instance if you intend to cook more than one pound (450g) of green beans, then use separate pans.

For your green beans recipes you may want to slice them and one of the best ways to do it is by using a proper Green Beans Slicer. Just feed the green beans into the hopper with one hand and crank with the other. This will slice the green beans in slim, uniform slices so that you can cook them evenly.  here.

Crock-pot Green Beans (Feijao Verde em Tacho de Barro)


250g (about 1/2 pound) of green beans, 1 onion, 3 or more garlic cloves, 2 bay leaves, 2 linguicas, salt and pepper to taste, 2 cracked eggs.


Save fat from cooking linguica and use about 1 table spoon of the linguica fat and place it in a small frying pan. Chop onions and garlic and sweat them in linguica fat. Do not brown them. When onions and garlic smell really good place them in your crock pot with warm water enough to cover the green beans. Turn on crock pot to high for 15 minutes or until green beans are soften. Crack eggs on top and cook for another 3 minutes with the lid on and it’s ready to serve. Serves 2

Stir frying is one of the ways to prepare green beans recipes and you can do it perfectly with a non-stick, die cast body Electric Wok  which will let you adjust the temperature. It is also excellent to stir fry meats as well as steaming vegetables, rice, dumplings, etc.
