Instructions Checklist
  • Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds, cook 2-3 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently, being careful not to burn. Add 2 Tbsp. of the butter, Worcestershire, lemon juice, and cumin. Cook until butter has melted, stirring constantly. Set aside on separate plate.

  • Melt remaining butter over medium-high heat. Add beans, cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, sprinkle almond mixture over all. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tips

Note: May toss and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb flavors.

Cook's Tip: The cumin acts as a “blender”. It helps to tie the other flavors together without imparting a distinct cumin flavor.

Made it with fresh green beans; steamed them for 4 minutes in the microwave then transferred to the pan with a tablespoon of bacon grease instead of the butter cooked for another 2-3 minutes. Delicious! Read More
