Oven Roasted Green Beans with Garlic Oyster Sauce

Printable Version (Recipe Only)

Green beans (aka String Beans aka Snap Beans) are super high in fiber and Vitamins A & C, among other nutrients. Here's a delicious and fun Asian-inspired finger food recipe that easily gets my big monsters eating half a pound of them each.

Oven Roasted Green Beans with Garlic Oyster Sauce
Serves 4 as a side

Time: About 20 minutes
Printable Version

- 1 pound green beans, washed, dried, stems removed
- 1.5 Tablespoons oil


- 3 Tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
- 2/3 to 1 Tablespoon honey, depending on how sweet you like your food
- 1/2 Tablespoon water
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1) Preheat oven to 425F.

2) Toss the green beans with the 1.5 Tablespoons oil to thoroughly coat each green bean and spread evenly in a single layer on a half sheet pan.

3) Roast green beans for 8 minutes on middle rack of oven. While you're waiting, combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and stir to mix thoroughly.

4) After 8 minutes, take the beans out of the oven, pour the sauce over them and gently stir to coat. Make sure to put the beans back in a single layer on the sheet pan.

5) Put the beans back on the top rack of the oven and roast another 2 to 2.5 minutes.

6) Serve beans on a platter with the remaining pan sauce drizzled on top.  Toasted sesame seeds are also a super cute and yummy garnish, but Joe and Mads aren't having any of that... YET. :)

I usually serve them up in a big bowl or platter, and we all pick 'em up with our grubby fangers and munch away, but you can totally serve them as part of a plated meal to be eaten with forks (or chopsticks).



P.S. That sauce that clings to the bottom of your dish is really yummy with steamed rice. ^^

P.P.S. Quick Tip: Sometimes it's hard measuring out thicker condiments in measuring spoons because they cling when you try to pour them out. A quick swirl of vegetable or olive oil in your measuring spoon (or cup) will make it super easy for the stuff to slide right out and you're all set for your next one!
