I never liked green beans until I tried this recipe. The beans, onion and chopped pecans are coated in a delicious orange-mustard sauce. Now I make it for my family on a regular basis. -Donna Buckley, Western Springs, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 small red onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Place beans in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook onion and pecans in butter until onion is tender. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, orange juice, mustard and salt; stir into the onion mixture. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until sauce begins to thicken. Stir in beans; heat through.
