Easy Savory Dinner Recipe: Green Bean Skillet

It’s full of rich beefy flavor, it’s melty and cheesy, and it packs a mean veggie punch! The best part is the savory + cheesy flavor helps mask the greens, meaning even our pickiest eater asks for seconds!

This recipe is so simple and uses only one pan. We love using our cast iron but a regular pan / skillet would work too!

I love serving with a side of fresh fruit for our kiddos. Sometimes we add in a piece of garlic bread. It also pairs well with any side. But you can eat solo for a low carb dish too!

One of the best parts about this dish? It uses only one pan and one spoon. Meaning less dishes after dinner, and more family time!

Recipe Note

If you don’t use Better Than Bouillon Paste in your cooking, you should start yesterday! We LOVE adding it to skillets, soups and basically anything we can work it into.

This dish requires Better Than Beef Bouillon Paste, but you can sub 1/4 cup beef broth if you don’t have any on hand.
