But one of my favorite ways is with a bold seasoning on them; the beans can stand up to stronger flavors, and this preparation makes them perfect to serve alongside heartier grilled foods, such as steak and burgers. Use this recipe with the Asian long beans found in market this week from Mattawoman Creek Farms.Steam one pound of trimmed green beans until crisp-tender. Add to a medium bowl and drizzle 2 tablespoons of melted butter then toss. Sprinkle on 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon onion powder and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yields 4 servings.Recipe from Chef Patrick Evans-HyltonSubscribe free to Patrick’s Virginia Eats + Drinks Magazinewww.VirginiaEatsAndDrinksMagazine.comVENDORSThe Bakery at Riverside FarmBuck & BrambleChilly MermaidThe Creative WedgeCroc’s 19th Street BistroCromwell’s ProduceCrunchy CarrotDoughminion DonutsFlour Child BakeryFrom Rome with LoveFull Quiver FarmGive.
