Creole Green Beans


Creole Green Beans

I bet you don’t know the difference between Cajun and Creole cooking.  I mean it has something to do with Louisiana, right?

I never thought I liked that kind of food because I do not like the Zataran’s box mixes.  But with everything, you can adjust a recipe to your own taste.  One of the first things we tried were these green beans.  I also do not really like green beans either.  You’d think I don’t like anything.  Truth is I like almost anything.  Except Brussels Sprouts.  Well, not kimchi either.  Not into salty.

So what is the difference between Cajun and Creole cooking?

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 (14 ounce) package frozen green beans
  • 6 slices bacon, thick, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon creole seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt

Directions:

 

Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Stir in green beans, bacon, onion, green pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in cayenne pepper, Creole seasoning, and black pepper. Cover; reduce heat to low. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
