  1. 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.
  2. 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.


  • 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.

My husband and 17 year old son loved it. It was quick and easy.

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. ...

So tasty! Our new “favorite”!

Something new to do to a can of green beans and my husband really liked them.

My family ate these up! They seemed to enjoy these better than when I use a FRESH bean recipe! Who would of thought!

We used fresh beans and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Delicious!!
