Deluxe Steamed Green Beans

Deluxe Steamed Green Beans


  • fresh green beans
  • 2  Tbsp  butter
  • 2 - 3  cloves garlic, minced
  • 8  oz. fresh mushrooms, rinsed and quartered
  • salt and pepper


Construct a dish out of heavy duty tin foil. Rinse and snap the ends off of one pound (more or less) of fresh green beans and heap on the tinfoil dish. Add fresh garlic, quartered mushrooms, butter (in chunks) and salt and pepper to taste. Seal up the whole dish tightly, using an extra piece of tin foil wrapped around the whole thing. (From experience, it is best to keep all seals facing up) Place on your campfire grill over indirect heat, I.e. not over an open flame. Once you hear them steaming, allow to cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Open carefully, serve and enjoy! Can also add onion, zucchini, or squash if desired.
