Dale’s green beans (the best weeknight side dish!)

Are you tired of plain broccoli or boring potatoes? Are canned green beans getting old? Spice up your average side dish with this new recipe: Dale’s green beans.

If you haven’t heard of Dale’s, here’s the inside scoop.

  • Dale’s Steak Seasoning is a liquid marinade.
  • The ingredients are: soy sauce, onion, garlic, ginger and paprika.
  • It can be used as a tasty meat marinade, a meat sauce, or as a seasoning.
  • Dale’s tastes the best on green beans!
  • Make a homemade version of Dale’s with this recipe.

If you’re using fresh green beans, wash them in water and white vinegar, trim off the ends, then steam. If you’re opting for canned green beans, drain and rinse them first.

Now it’s time to start this fast and easy side dish. To begin, melt butter in a skillet. (Side note: What good recipe doesn’t begin with butter or garlic?!). Toss in minced garlic and let simmer for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Now it’s time to add the green beans and Dale’s to the skillet. Give everything a stir.

This is the most essential step: allow the beans to simmer in the Dale’s. If you remove them too early, the sauce will slip right off of the beans. Simmering is where the green beans magically absorb the Dale’s sauce, which will be quite a treat for your taste buds! You’ll be able to visibly observe when it’s been enough time, but 15-20 minutes is optimal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 23 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes


  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups green beans, 2 14.5 oz cans
  • 2-4 Tbsp Dale's Steak Seasoning


  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add the garlic and simmer for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add the green beans and the Dale’s to the skillet. Mix.
  4. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the green beans begin to absorb the sauce.


Canned green beans tend to absorb the sauce better than fresh green beans. If using fresh green beans, steam them until they are extra soft so they will better absorb the Dale’s.
