    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”.

    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.

    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!

  5. Brian

    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.

    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.
