One of my favorite things about this Stir-Fried Green Bean Recipe is the ability to adapt the spices to the meal I am serving. For instance, some meals call for a little spice so I add red pepper flakes. Other times, maybe some lemon pepper or ginger. However you choose to spice them, these beans add great texture to the meal. I like to serve stir-fried beans with Pork Roast and Sauerkraut because the pork and sauerkraut are sort of soft, and these beans add a nice crunchy texture to the meal. I always keep frozen, organic green beans in the freezer just in case I don’t have time to run to the store. You can use either fresh or frozen in the recipe without sacrificing taste.


Units Scale
  • 1 pound green beans, fresh or frozen, thawed, and drained
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (a little more if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)


  1. Trim and half the green beans.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the green beans, stirring and tossing them so that they are coated with the olive oil. Continue to stir and toss the beans for 3-4 minutes, or until they are just crisp-tender.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  4. Add the butter to the beans in the skillet and toss until the butter to coat. Stir fry for another 4 minutes, tossing the beans frequently, until the beans are crisp-tender.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.


This dish can be made with either fresh or frozen green beans.

Feel free to add any spices you like to the dish. This dish is also good with freshly roasted or sautéed garlic.
