Green Beans on the Grill

Green Beans on the Grill – Delicious

I eat green beans on the grill like candy! I prefer them grilled in the foil, with some charring. They are basically roasted and steamed at the same time.


Even the leftovers are delicious cold.

Try adding some onion or tossing with lemon pepper before serving.

  • 1 lb green beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 -3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt to taste
  • ground pepper to taste
  • 1 -2 tablespoon water
  • 2 -3 sheets of aluminum foil
  1. Put the green beans on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to fold and seal. You may need to fold two sheets together.

  2. Note: I also use one sheet of foil to set the pouch on. This way if any liquid seeps out or it pulls apart it doesn't leave a mess.

  3. Drizzle olive oil over the beans. Add the minced garlic and crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper to taste.

  4. Toss green beans with tongs until well coated.

  5. Add water and fold aluminum foil together at the top and pinch the sides closed.

  6. Cook the green bean pouch on the grill for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Recipe Notes

When I put my main dish on the grill I open the beans and toss with tongs. If all the water is gone, add a little more, reseal, and move to the top rack. If I lift the grill lid to flip the main dish I usually give the pouch a shake.


Enjoy these Green Beans on the Grill!
