Outback Steakhouse Steamed Green Beans
- 1 pound fresh green beans (preferably very thin), trimmed
- 4 ounces salted butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Maggi seasoning (see Note)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
- Steam the green beans in either a steamer or your microwave until they are just done; you want them still firm. In my microwave, it takes about 2 minutes to steam the green beans. While the green beans are steaming, begin making your seasoned butter sauce.
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, Maggi seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved. When the green beans are done, place them in a bowl. Add about half of the butter sauce, in the bowl, and stir the green beans until they are coated.
I did this for carrots – normally I throw some maple syrup on this was a really welcome change! Will do again with the beans for sure!
Please publish ” Texas Roadhouse” green beans. Those green beans are the BEST
Please tell me what the Maggi Seasoning is used in Outbacks Green Beans? You don’t even have the recipe for it or what to use? You said “See Note”. Well there is no “See Note”.
It is a sauce you purchase in the Asian section of your grocery store.
These are great, I’ve made them twice now, but haven’t followed exactly. Specifically, I cut the butter way down. You call for 4 oz of butter…that’s a whole stick. The pic seems to show a half a stick or 4 tbs… I’m using 3 tbs, and that seems quite adequate, and I LOVE butter. So is it really a whole stick? Also at the end, you call for using only half of the seasoning mix. What?
So in the recipe you mention that there is a note with regard to the “Maggi Seasoning”. I could not find the note. Could you tell me where to purchase it or how to make it. I love Outback green beans & would love to know what makes them taste different.
You can find this in the Asian section of most grocery stores. It’s a very common ingredient.
I used to work at Outback and always loved their green beans, this seasoning taste just like it and the whole family (including toddler) loved them!
Maggi seasoning is a brand with multiple bouillons, sauces and spices available. The recipe is tasty regardless but I would like to know more specifics about Maggi seasonings.
It tastes like a different soy sauce. Really tasty
I find that1/4 c. Brown sugar 3 T. soy sauce and 1/2 stick of butter sautéed with 2 T. of minced garlic 1/4 tsp. of crushed red pepper works well in place of the Maggi sauce. Melt butter on low heat, sauté garlic until soft add brown sugar, and soy sauce. Cook over low heat until thickened. Maybe you will like this?
I served these to my husband last night without mention of a new recipe. He immediately said, “these are the best string beans I’ve ever had! What did you do to them?” Thank you for the recipe! Our store didn’t have maggi seasoning so I did what others did and used soy sauce.
Good for you 😉 It’s always great when your family loves a good meal!
Back For Seconds
Mmmmmm My whole family will love these!!
I hope they do!
