Parisian Green Beans

I love green beans and I am always looking for new ways to make green beans. Sometimes you just get tired of the same plain Jane recipe. I remember a recipe my dad made called Parisian green beans. I have no idea why they were called Parisian other than the wine in them, but I do remember them tasting amazing so I thought I would try making them myself. I am sure happy I did. They turned out perfect and bursting with flavor. They cook quickly and have a nice end result.

  • 8 ounces of frozen green beans
  • 1 tablespoon dry onions
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pepper to taste


  1.  In a skillet add water, beef bouillon, butter, wine, pepper, dry onions, and bring to a boil. Once your mixture begins to boil cover and cook down to half the original amount of liquid.
  2. Once you are at half the liquid add green beans, cover and simmer until the green beans are tender and your liquid thickens.
